I just checked this out. Actually, you're not high up in the clouds -- you're in the hole. It starts you with an altitude of 0 ASL; but since that's below local ground level you're in the hole. The AGL altitude is enormous -- around 33000 ft -- because that's how deep the hole is. To see this, take the UFO off of runway 30 and fly it across the hole. Watch your AGL altitude explode. I flew down the hole but didn't find ground at the bottom.
