I am very interested in the cave you are describing in Banos. I have some caving experience and would very much like to be involved in getting past that rock you spoke of to explore the cave and tunnels. What are your plans for returning to the cave in the near future? How can interested people get involved?
Stan's response: Thanks for your comments Rick. I think it would be interesting to assemble a group of 5 or 6 interested cave explorers and discuss how to best open a passage around the large boulder in the cave. If there is enough interest, I could write up a brief paper on the exact conditions of the blockage as I saw it and we could brainstorm it from there.
Then we would need to arrange for permission from the landowner to re-enter the cave. That should be relatively easy to do. If we have some interest, perhaps you could help me to organize a small expedition.
