Hello from Paint Rock Alabama!!

Postby MisfitEcho » Mar 14, 2018 4:35 pm

Hello everyone.
A bit about me, I just moved to the Paint Rock area of alabama.

I'm originally from the SouthWest and before coming here was an avid climber and canyoneer. The land I have just moved on is 160acres on the side of a limestone mountain with one decent sinkhole. I am told there are caves (apparently they use to lead a few groups here?) and me being the nerd I am would love to find them, explore, catalog and preserve these. Also, I would prefer to find a group of people who would want to explore them as well. So if anyone could help me find these, how to find these and how the best way to map and catalog them.

Hope to learn a ton here!

Contact a local Grotto. Odds are good that the members have visited the caves and may have mapped them. They'll get you going in the right direction.
