Dave Schnute, Herb Conn, and Jan Conn discovered the Frostline on August 22, 1964. Spectacular examples of frostwork can be seen in this area. All the frostwork seems to have developed below a line which can clearly be seen in the rooms at either end, hence the name. The Conn's were hoping this frostwork would lead to a lot more cave.
