Where to get information on Swaygo-Carpenter Cave, WV

Postby frbarton » Nov 24, 2013 2:55 pm

Hey all,

We're looking at making a trip to Swaygo-Carpenter Cave in West Virginia. We're hoping to make entry from the Swaygo entrance, and explore for a few hours. If anyone could point me towards some information/maps of this cave, We'd be much obliged. Especially, information on the presence (or lack thereof) of anchor points for the repels, as well as most convenient (legal) parking places for the trip. Thanks in advance for any help,

Frederick

Unfortunately the Carpenters-Swago cave system (& all the other caves on his property) has been closed by the owner.

Well that's highly unfortunate. Not totally sure where else in WV we can do a vertical cave...
