Cave Rescue, April 3, 1993
Sharps Cave, WV


On Saturday, April 3, an annual gathering saw cavers from several NSS grottos at Sharps Cave in Pocahontas County, West Virginia. That afternoon several groups entered the cave. One group of 15 or 20 cavers of all experience levels spent about four hours touring the cave. When they went to exit, one man (42) was too tired to make the narrow 10-foot entrance climb. A seat harness and rope were fetched from nearby vehicles and the man was pulled up only 45 minutes after his climbing attempts.
