Cave Rescue, December, 1990
Clover Hollow Cave, VA


REPORT

On a trip to Clover Hollow Cave, in Giles County, Virginia, Ann Strange slid down a five-foot descent a little too fast and injured her wrist. A new angle to the limb indicated a bone was broken. Pain medication was administered and the arm was splinted with a rack and blue-jean material. With the arm in a sling she proceeded out, being belayed at exposed places that included a crawl across a ledge at the edge of one pit. At the 70-foot entrance pit, she was put into a companion's rig that would allow her to make it using one arm. There was no further incident.
