Peacock is Open as of 4.24.13
Peacock is open again.
Vis is 35 on the Peanut side, some places maybe 40.
30-35 on the Pothole side, some places barely 30.
45-50 From OG to Challenge. Lots of silt on the walls and floor.
Steps are slippery. Five steps are underwater.
Good vis at OG. Lots of silt on the floor.
The worst part of the cave is on the Pothole side up to 700 feet due to river water intrusion from the Nicholson Tunnel– clears at the back-to-back arrows headed toward Olsen.
You will be able to easily reduce visibility in the cave if not using proper technique due to all the silt on the floor. So many of the places we are used to seeing sandy bottom…we saw covered in that very fine layer of silt we always see after these floods.
