Congrats Amy and team. All the hard work finally pays off. Glad to read that you also kept conservation in mind ;D. And perhaps this new cave can serve as a fine example of modern (21th century) cave exploration for other US (and non US) cavers.

Keep up the good work.

The photos show a beautifull cave and yes for me it looks like a typical Alpine cave. I see a lot of similarities with the caves I work in on the PSM. Btw did you find a river or streamway already  on the base of the limestone layer?

I can't wait to see more and good luck with the further exploration.

I have the survey i currently have finished, but it needs some more stuff (vertical profile most notibly). Myself and brandi are weiting up an in depth report full of the stories of discovery and exploration for the NSS news. Feel free to pm me for the map if you want to see what i have thus far.

Yes two brits have been in there and both said the entrance series is very...british. Hahaha!

We did get down to the stream on south side. Unstable breakdown is a major issue of human jenga to even touch. But there is a crawl under good monteagle for someone small and sporty. North and south end flow towards each other so somehwere in the middle underneath Death Boulders is where it goes.
