Jamaican Caving Notes
Saucy River Cave
May 4, 2005
Team: Stewart, Conolley
Notes: RS Stewart
We are not sure that we had the right site for this cave, or if we had a different one in the same cockpit bottom. NSS only partially explored the cave, and produced no map. We visited it with a "guide" who insisted that we had the right one, but his word is not to be trusted.
What we found was an active stream passage that could be entered at various locations through small collapses, but was small and muddy in much of it. It was taking water that ultimately fed into a bouldery sink beneath a low hill.
No Sesarma were observed, or bats, and the only trog inverts were Velliidae (small water striders).
Siltation is moderate.
