Glory Hole Cave in Utah

Postby Cave Corgi » Mar 30, 2015 10:32 pm

Okay, first. Yes, Glory Hole Cave is real.
I've found mention of a cave somewhere in Utah known as "Glory Hole", and I thought it might have merit for exploring. I decided to do some research. I found from separate places that it is either being mined, collapsed, or closed.
Does anyone know about the actual condition of the cave?

Glory Hole is a minor cave in the Uinta Mountains. It has a long history connected with gold seekers and currently has a mining claim staked on it. Entry could be a problem. The area doesn't open up until around the first of June.
