    Great work! Loved the vid and both of you displayed superb control - not one swear word (that I could hear anyway) during the silt out........

    I debated whether or not to put that in the video but it was a rush! Funny thing was that I hardly touched the silt but it then started to spill like an hourglass down the elevator shaft

    How did it feel to be on the outside of the wreck after the silt out?

    The silt out was a rush but it was nothing to panic about. Once I pushed back from the 3rd floor edge and dropped down to the 2ed floor, visibility opened back up. At this point, I waited for Jitka and she showed up within a few seconds. We had two choices, find an exit from the second floor or go back up the elevator shaft (thru the silt) and exit out the original exit. We choose to exit on the 2ed floor without any more issues. Since we were on RBs, time was not a big factor.

    Wreck siltout is indeed 'challenging'. Anybody drop anything this time? (weights, light, or ????? )

    Best,
