The Exploration of Cass Cave, West Virginia
Huntley Ingalls


Cass Cave was first investigated in 1947. In 1949 the systematic exploration of the cave was begun in earnest and carried on until 1957. The entrance to the cave is via a small passage 800 feet long, 170 feet of which is a crawlway. Beyond this is a drop of 180 feet to the floor of the large room which is 830 feet long, 180 feet high and 75 feet wide. The cave leading from the Big Room is over 5000 feet long, consisting of passages of all types from wet crawlways to large rooms and domepits.
