Trip: On 1/8/2000, Evan Anderson led Pat Roberson, Micah Ball, and Shawn Kramer to the Easter Basket area in the Western Fringe Section.

Trip Report: We pushed leads near the Easter Basket. We surveyed into a nasty breakdown crawl that led into large cave that we named Hoo-Pnew, which looks to be the other half of Deep Confusion. We were soon getting 40-foot shots and named another large room the Mosaics! We mopped-up all the leads off of the big passage. We surveyed 1,055 feet total and left a few leads.
