Ton 80 Room Discovery

Trip: On 7/14/2001, Carl Bern led Christa Schneider, Kirk Digby, and Amy Bern to the Mule Creek Junction area in the North Section, where they discovered the Ton 80 Room.

Trip Report: We returned to our FQ survey to the three unpromising leads we left on our last trip to the area. The second lead went into a large room 90 feet by 40 feet!! We named it the Ton 80, which is the highest score a person can get in darts. We then surveyed into a 40-foot deep canyon. We left lots of leads and surveyed 450 feet.
