As I said earlier there is equipment that can bore through from above albeit maybe too hard to get it there or maybe the distance to drill maybe too deep. Havenít heard anybody mention this on the news but time is running out and itís going to get harder as time goes on weather is against them.

Yes the BBC reported that a "hole" was being dug, and they had got 400 metres down, but they needed get to 600 mtrs.  What all that meant I don't know and it has not been mentioned again ;)

Just found this on the BBC website:

Meanwhile, rescuers outside the cave have dug more than 100 holes in an attempt to reach the cave by a direct route. There were 18 promising ones, the deepest at 400m, but Mr Narongsak said he was not sure if it would reach the boys, who are believed to be about 600m below the surface.

Full details with diagram:

https://bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-44748924

I would assume where they don't know the exact location of the cave that they have drilled 100 small test holes to try and reach the cave and if they succeed they will then drill a hole big enough to bring them out.

iirc Underground structures are very difficult to detect without using explosive charges and recording the sound wave reflections. In these circumstances such techniques are clearly inappropriate.

How did they get it, if parts a too steep to climb normally, or only 15" floor to ceiling?

A bit strange that they're being quarantined as they are being brought out...

Good that they are making progress though :y Fingers crossed that they all make it out in one piece.

I believe TB that they went in through the main entrance tunnel which at some point afterwards caved in blocking further entry/exit and the route they're now using is/was the only route left available to reach and extricate them.

At least the authorities are taking sensible precautions over the health of the kids and the wider community.Although I believe the many requests for chocolate that the kids have made have so far been refused while their diet is carefully monitored at this stage.Operation is underway to bring out the last 4 kids and their coach.Here's hoping :y
