Crazy Column Cave

This cave is located in a hidden bowl between a maze of towering cliffs above Springville. After a rock was removed from the entrance, my brother and I were the first to fully explore this cave. It extends down at a 50-60 degree angle until it becomes too tight to continue on.



A very rugged canyon!

The entrance is nearly invisible unless you are directly above it.

Just inside the entrance.





There are a lot of delicate formations in every crack and crevice we could see.

Surveying the "hopeless end". This is the bottom of the North tube.


We named the cave after this prominent feature.

"Redenbacher Room" (to the right) drops off quite steeply and is accessed from a cross passage farther down the left tunnel. We gave it its name because of the large ammount of popcorn formations.







This is the "Delicate End", the bottom of the South passage. It is very sharp and too delicate to continue at the bottom.

I really want to know where this cave is. Is there anyway you could give me some directions. I have been all over the canyons above Springville and still have had no luck.
