Beautiful dive with my buddy, who originally mapped this site many years ago, Guy Bryant. This is what sidemount is all about. Getting low for the dough, and exploring cave passage that often silts out. Total penetration for this dive was approximately 2100 feet. Max depth was 82 feet.

Here is Guy’s post dive report:

"The current at the entrance was strong, we had to pull hard to get inside. Once inside where the cave opens up the current was easily swimmed against.

"The vis up to the first "T" in the line was slightly cloudy with a lot of particulates indicating that someone had dived here recently. Once we passed the first "T" the vis improved to crystal clear with no particulates.

"We first took the left fork and went to the "boulder room" to look at the boulder that had slid and was blocking the tunnel. We then turned and went back to the 1st "T". Next, we went upstream to the 2nd "T", took the left and dropped down the crevice to 80ft depth and went downstream to look at the backside of the boulder that had slide and blocked the tunnel.

"We then went back to the 2nd "T" and continued upstream to the end of the main line, turned and exited. Total bottom time of 66 min with 13 min deco [on air, but not for me on Nitrox] at 10ft."
