Objective Push additional safety bottles out beyond 15,000′ while evaluating exploration leads.
Logistics Five Gavin Scooters, EE HID with Nicad batteries, Halcyon breather with 2 single 80 drive bottles 10/85, safety bottles to be pushed into cave
Bottom Time 6.5 hours
Maximum Depth 300′
Results Dive was very successful with set up going so smoothly that George and JJ decided to continue on evaluating leads along the way and marking areas for future penetrations. The duo ended up at the end of the line and tied in for additional exploration laying approximately 200′ of line and then deciding that the passage shape and lack of flow indicated this area does not hold the best promise for future exploration dives. The exit was made smoothly while marking and evaluating Additional leads from 18 to approximately 10k.
