OOC: Flint could carry extra gear but no one else is light enough.
As the water slowly breeches the sides of the pool the party remaining below has wet boots and robes that skirt the ground. The door in the room is still accessible or there's the climb. The first outcropping is 10ft over head. If Tobias and Flint work together to secure a rope the rest of the party would have a leg up!

Sometimes a Nat 1 tells a better story than a Nat 20 ever could.
"Wow, that was quite the climb," Tobias says beginning to breathe hard. He takes a rope from his pack secures it to his ledge, and drops it down. While waiting for the others to ascend he begins to remove his gear and place it on the bad of holding.
As flint floats up to the edge, he would grab hold of the clif face and pull himself on to ledge. Seeing Tobias already working to secure a rope, Flint would work to help him and secure his grappling hook between a few heavy solid rocks before dropping a second rope down beside the one Tobias dropped. "Well... That was pretty easy really.." Flint would say with a grin and a tip of his kettle helm.
Nam will cast 'light' on Tobias' shield on request then prep himself for a climb he didn't want to make. ‘Climbing that I hate or water that I hate’ he thinks to himself. “ life is full of crappy choices” he says under his breath.
Nelburn is probably the only one aware that his water breathing enchantment is still active and is therefore completely unbothered by the rising water. “You lads got a hold up there yet?” He says utterly casually.
OOC: thanks for pointing out that sentence! Missed it totally! :)
Karnic looks at the rising water and then at the rope and attempts to climb the rope. He thinks he is doing great at first then wonders why the cliff isn't getting any closer. Karnic realizes that he has just been placing one hand over the other without really going anywhere and is still standing on the ground.
OOC: Tobias does think this but perched on a precarious outcropping isn't quiet sure undressing is the best idea given the limited space and vast distance from the stoney floor! What Nel should wonder is will his party members wait around for hours for the room to fill up for him to swim up assuming the water will rise to the level of the opening above anyhow.
The flumphs begin to ascend into the abyss above the climbing party leaving neon trails of light behind them into the darkness before disappearing.
Nam attempts to climb Flint's rope but is making slow progress. He's able to climb 10ft before feeling the strain in his arms but the sorcerer is climbing slow but steady. Nam notices from his vantage runes on the floor if the room being activated by the water!
Karnic attempts to climb Tobias' rope but goes no where as he realized. The cleric might need a boost.
The water is still rising steadily....eveyone perception checks please.
With Flint at the ledge now Nelburn releases the enchantment on him and recasts levitate on Karnic would appears to be struggling to get anywhere with the offered ropes. Once the enchantment has taken hold and Karnic begins to float Nelburn moves to Tobias’ rope and grabs hold of it instead himself and begins to try and pull himself up now that Karnic is weightless.
