Boomerang Cave

Boomerang Cave has a nice 150 foot entrance drop that is a free rappel most of the way down.  The cave becomes progressively more technical the deeper you go, but from all that have visited, they have said it is one of their favorites.

If you go, make sure you don't miss the side passage at the bottom of the first pit, before you make your way climbing up to the second drop. You'd have to work your way around some logs but it's an extremely short crawl just to visit that one extra room in the cave.

Anyone know how old the fixed static line is that is used to ascend up to the rappel for the 3rd pit? I was in there two days ago and decided it wasn't worth it to risk jugging up it without knowing its age and the anchor set up top.
