You would have taken that calculated risk by deciding not to carry a digger or substitute for digging in inventory. Except in the first early levels, when death might happen before you can afford a digger that would get through granite, but in those early times there are a large number of other unfortunate deaths that are no fault of the @, so this would be no different.

You could vary the rock type by the dungeon depth. Rubble in the first couple of levels, then magma/quartz/granite with granite coming in somewhere in the 1000-2000' range.

you would need to
1. have the trap trigger in a situation where it can actually lock you in
2. without the ability to dig rubble
3. without a large number of !phase
4. without recall
5. without teleport
