I’m with essan, I believe that there is an ocean over the north pole, so how exactly do you plan on getting there?
I would speculate that even if such a thing were possible, though I personally don’t believe it exists, it would require a lot of equipment and
specialized training. Being a diver, I know the effects of pressure, have you taken that into account? I have done some cave diving, and I can tell
you this much, caves are a really quick place to die if you don’t know exactly what you are doing, and have the correct training and equipment. I
have never tried spelunking, but there are some factors of that which make it even more dangerous then cave diving. You can easily walk off a cliff in
the dark, get lost, run out of breathable air, run out of batteries on your lights, get caught in a cave-in, end up in a shaft that becomes flooded,
and even more. At least when your diving you don’t need to be an expert climber, or worry about falling if you get to close to a steep edge.
Oh, BTW, have you ever tried just going underground in a controlled environment, like a guided tour? You might get under all the earth and find that
you panic very easily. it’s a somewhat uncomfortable feeling knowing you can be trapped and crushed at a seconds notice, and it tends to be very
claustrophobic even to those who are not normally claustrophobic.
