Omega is a very difficult and technical cave. We have already had to recover the body of a very very experienced caver in Omega. He fell 230 feet to his death. The main entrance has a very secure gate. The other entrance is lower and on private property.
Unless you are competent in Vertical Cave techniques, and have the proper equipment, rope and experience please leave Omega to the more experienced cavers. If you do decide to go and you find the other, un-gated entrance, be warned there are 4 vertical drops before you get to any cave that can be explored without ropes and hardware. There are over 35 miles of mapped passages in Omega and getting lost inside is easily done. If you go please let someone know where you are going and when to call for help if you don't make it out and home safe.

The guy that got killed had an equipment malfunction. He was using equipment that was outdated.
