New caver, few questions about Petty Johns

Postby weekendwarrior72 » Aug 1, 2016 1:34 pm

Hey everyone, I recently got into caving this last July. It's awesome, and as I live in the northern 'burbs of Atlanta, I'm relatively close to all that sweet TAG goodness. I've recently been making trips out to Petty Johns, getting as far as the bottom of the volcano room and the stream beds at the bottom of the cave. However, I'm trying to get to the discovery room, and want to take a different route instead of the volcano room- I want to bypass the volcano room via the Mason-Dixon passage. However, I'm unable to find the entrance to the flat room. Additionally, If anyone would like to join me and my party of 3 tomorrow, shoot me a pm.
Thanks

Hi Weekendwarrior:
There used to be a very nice, multi-page detailed map of PJ posted online by a guy named Hubert Crowell. Not sure where the bulk of them are anymore, as my Google searches don't seem to bring them up. Here is a link to one of them showing the entrance area:

This one shows what he calls the Labyrinth area:

I am not personally that familiar with PJ, otherwise I'd offer more advice on finding what you are looking for. Good luck, and cave safely!

Thanks, I found those before my trip on the and they were great. I've since figured it out the route, but I appreciate your help nonetheless.
