Date Submitter Visbility Remarks
2/29/2020 Teddy Garlock 10í Visibility as expected for a river cave. Dove ~1000í in, removed 1 of 3 lines currently occupying the passage.
6/18/2019 Ryan Wareham 30ft Tons of cave life. A very unstable looking rock formation in one of the fissures (a 7-8 foot projection of rock with no support below it and 40 ft above the cave floor. It appeared to move a little when my bubbles hit it as I ascended, but maybe I was narced). However there are multiple exits to this cave system.
5/26/2019 DMR 20-25 Very mild flow. Multiple lines in place, some in need of repair. Based on silt collecting on the line and ceiling, I donít think ankyone has visited lately.
6/9/2011 Jerry 30 to 40 ft Best vis I've seen in years! Lot's of life. Mild flow.
4/22/2011 Marc 25' 71.6 temp @96' - low flow
12/8/2010 Jerry 40 ft Spring has positive outflow but the flow in the cave is low. Lots of life; take line for repairs.
