The Death Bell
A new Ontario cave is discovered while stumbling through the woods. Myself Greg W and Mick G were searching a cave rich area West of Toronto this long weekend when we stumbled across this interesting cave. Its always nice to explore a new find but this cave entrance seemed a bit special, the entrance appeared to open into a room sized chamber that was hinting at the passage that may be beyond. After some cave entrance housekeeping our equipment specialist Greg W rigged everything up and our fun began.

A possible dig point.
This photo shows the continuing passage after a pinch point just large enough for my arm to fit through.
A dig would possibly open up more passage.
The small red dot right side of the black void, an animals eye???
Some small formations in the side passage.
