147 - HOLE 147

Mon 29 Aug 1988
Joe Lenartowicz


Joe + Mark, after camping last night at camp 1 (loverly moonlit night after a gorgeous hot sunny day) pushed final pitch in 147 - involved bolting horrid cheesy rock, so carefully backed-up to a boulder in the chamber. Gardening by trundling some nice lumps to create some big bangs left us a nice pitch to ledge 15' down. Chamber off opposite has drafting bedding plane (dug but no go). Pitch continues down slanting shaft to sudden end (small drafting hole only couple of inches high).

* THERE ARE SEVERAL PLACES in 147 where there is definitely an enormous stretch of cave beyond a frustrating choke - this cave HAS _POTENTIAL_ *
