Burns Cave #2


15 minutes. Produced in 1997.

Burns Cave #2, in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, presents an especially challenging trip. Normally the cave is siphoned shut within 500 feet of the entrance. However, under drought conditions, the full siphon turns into a near siphon with only about three inches of air space at one location. This is just enough space to let cavers through.

This video is from footage shot on a caving trip which took place on October 11, 1997. The primary purpose of the trip was to document on film and video some of the wonders of this cave, which is usually not open because of the siphons. The program shows the need for full wetsuits, but after the wet entrance series is traversed, cavers can change into dry clothes and enjoy some excellent caving. Big booming trunk passages, challenging side leads with virgin cave, and beautiful white formations are some of the features that draw cavers to Burns Cave #2.
