Morris Cave

Cave Type: Horizontal

Rock Type: Colombian marble, Shelburne formation

Description: New England’s fourth largest cave, Morris Cave has some 1800′ of passage, the first 600′ containing three ‘filters’: the Cobble Crawl, the wet pinch, and the last pinch. The last of these, 500′ into the cave, is a 9.5″ x 15″ x 24″ long squeeze at the bottom of a U shaped passage; most folks have to take off their helmets, and enter the pinch upside down, on their back. After the last pinch, the cave opens into some large rooms with multiple passages heading out to the Lake Room, Waterfalls Passage, and Corkscrew.

Difficulty: Moderate
