Cave / shaft – in the roof of Ontario
This is a picture of the structure above the big shaft. Cavers had constructed the shelter to assist in the digging when the hole was still directly beneath. In time the hole went in the direction of the hose you can see hanging in the picture – it cuts under the rock in a kind of “J” shape.
This little shed brings back memories – I had been a caver for some years already (caving on my own and with friends) and was corresponding with Marcus who had kind of been mentoring me.
Marcus told me of the dig that was taking place (thus unleashing the caving monster within) and so by various means I ferreted out the location and headed up there. There was nobody there on the day that I made my visit so I left a note in a can in the structure saying that I wanted to be a part of the digging. About 3 weeks later I got a call from Greg who said they would be digging that weekend. It was my first contact with the TCG and from there I met many other cavers and my knowledge and opportunity leap-frogged forward.
