Matienzo 2023

Objectives: linking Four Valleys System & Fridge Door Cave; excavate a new entrance to avoid diving. These were achieved. With other finds, 4.5 km of cave was found. Using a new entrance linked in 2022, so avoiding a 6+km one-way trip, a resurvey to correct a known vertical error of a key high-level passage was also completed.
