1/3/2015 Charles Read Excellent Sidemount cave, very clear visibility except when you stir up the mud bottom. Can't help that at the entrance, nor at the quite severe restriction at around 45ft depth. Inlet on the left has its line junction at around 60ft deep but only goes about 15 feet before it splits into 3, all too small to continue. Below 100ft deep back on the main, downstream, passage, there's some tannic intrusion so the visibility is not quite so good. Line end is at 185ft deep by my dive computer.

11/18/2007 Davy Excellent Yes, there's a tunnel down there. Descended down the crevass with just a pony bottle, and pushed the leaves & sticks out of the way, and under a ledge was a lovely, cozy, inviting little tunnel.
