Nice comprehensive answer! Unfortunately you hit me by some minutes as I was just formulating quite the same, so the upvote goes to you.

comment What precautions are needed for caving
I don't know what type of cave it is, but going there without an experienced person might be not the best idea. Although some of the rope techniques are similar to those used in climbing, the caving guys have developed lots of special techniques for problems that climbers never have and therefore never learn about. Therefore doing your first caving trip by rappelling into a cave that should have another exit but maybe you have to jumar back does not sound like a safe and easy first time trip to me.
