View from abroad

I met up with Dennis Jump today. He's a climber and caver from the Midlands in England, who was visiting with a climbing friend, Stewart Green, here. Dennis got a chance to explore Breezeway, a part of the Williams Canyon cave system that includes Cave of the Winds and that's not open to the public. His assessment of the cave: "Amazing."

Jump explores caves often in Europe, but he says he's never seen anything so clean, so undamaged, as he saw here. "And they warned me about the mud," he said. "You don't know mud. WE know mud."

My colleague Dave Philipps wrote a story about his Breezeway experience in Out There (Oct. 21, 2005).
