    Tresviso 1994 (LUSS)

    Abstract

    After a brief interlude of exploration, Lancaster University Speleological Society (LUSS) recommenced the Tresviso expeditions, concentrating on smaller lightweight expeditions, looking for ‘middle entrances’ to Cueva del Nacimiento.

    Summary

    • Exploration around the Sierra del a Corta continued
    • The Cheese Cave explored to -90m to a constriction, with a chamber on the far side. (This later transpired to be the Cueva del Entre Cuetos, explored in 1982 to a similar depth)
