Cave Rescue, Winter, 1991
Wildcat Cave, WV


Cavers preparing to visit Wildcat Cave in West Virginia consulted the weather and found a forecast for light drizzle. On the way to the cave they observed Culverson Creek to be low and clear. Thus reassured, they entered and proceeded via Death Canyon to the Williams Passage to continue a survey. They mapped for 285 feet but were nervous about the weather and headed for the entrance at that point. At Death Canyon they found a two-foot increase in the water level. They continued out through high water now involving swims and low ceiling space.
