3/1/2009 Walter Pickel 100' Jerry and Jill connected McCormick Sink to Rose Creek Sink at 11.36AM. Since Rose is the bigger system, McCormick Sink will now be listed under Rose Creek.

While Jill and Jerry decompressed, we cleaned up the stages in the system and left no gear in the cave.
2/27/2009 Walter Pickel 100' Spent the weekend setting up Jill and Jerry for their push dive on Sunday (3.1.2009). We staged 6 bottles for them out to the siphon tunnel.
1/31/2009 Walter Pickel 80' Did a working dive upstream to mark stage bottle drops. Viz was very nice with the bluest water i have ever seen. The system needs a few dives to make for a good cleaning.
11/25/2007 Walter Pickel 80-100 Visibility was superb and the water was BLUE! Discernible flow with an amazing amount of life. Many, many blind albino crayfish and isopods. Dove mostly upstream but a few hundred feet downstream after returning back to the mainline from the upstream jump.
