Trip: On 2/11/2006, Marc Ohms led Andy and Bonny Armstrong and Rene Ohms to the Key Room area in the North Section where they discovered the Stalactites Galore area.

Trip Report: We started with a lead at WS42 that dead-ended after about 100 feet. We then headed to the PB survey, south of the Key Room, where we found much to survey. At PB15 we surveyed a connection to KYB2, which was very well decorated with all sorts of pretties. We named it Stalactites Galore. We surveyed 802 feet.
