Chicchan waits for Lark to lock his fingers together, then steps onto his hands and tries to climb out.
If he makes it out ok, he'll first listen at the door to see if he can hear any activity on the other side.
If all seems clear, he'll pull out his climbing rope, cut off a 50' section of it (it's a 150' rope) and start knotting it to make it easier to climb. He'll make sure he has a 10' section of rope with knots in it (total length of 10' after the knots have been added) and then will anchor the rope securely before throwing it down for the others.
I'll rule that you can pick up crossbows easily enough - see the Bass Pro or Cabela's websites for appropriate pricing - be sure to include bolts, heads, quivers, cases along with the bow.
The night vision goggles...
The sports stores have binoculars available, but in binocular format, not in a goggles where you wear them ala military style. Trips to the "spy" shops and surplus stores get you the latest conspiracy theories as well as news that to get those types of goggles, you'll need to order them, then wait. The cheapest (and least effective) is $3,500 a pair - which allows you to see at a 75 yards (225') range, but not effectively, and you need some ambient light to work with (1st generation). The more expensive 3rd generation, at $5,000.00 will allow you to see at 100 yards and you can use them in total darkness, although it will be the effect of a "beam" versus a wide open area. It will take a week to order/get them and you'll need to leave 50% deposit up front.

Sam will pick up the Nalgene bottles mentioned in the OOC thread ($68)plus the "Backpacker" first aid kit ($19) from Bass Pro while the others pick up their weaponry. No crossbows for him - not really his gig here, ya know?
After that, he'll be ready to go. Still has Detect Magic memorized and t he Portal spell scroll ready to use when we get back below.
