Dynamite Cave Adventure

Six of us did the Dynamite Cave on Saturday. This cave is up, outside of Trout Lake, Washington. The cave entrance is just a couple hundred yards from the parking area. We spent about 8-hours in the cave, which goes for about 2.3 miles into the ground. This adventure included 4-rappels and a couple of ascents with ascenders. It also included a few tight squeezes, and a dicy 4-th class traverse over an 80’ pit. Since it was pitch dark, I imagined that the pit was full of hungry crocks…nipping at my heels…which made it much more dicy 
Fun day with a fun group…Myself, Mark, Rob, Marty, Vince, and Katherine.
