The latest Cueva Vallina survey is now online (link below). Included are the explorations carried out this autumn in the Zona Blanca (Birds' World) and Galería Jesús Lecue areas, and the results from the summer campaign by the Catalan cavers.
For this Vallina Project 2021, the Espeleo Club Tortosa organised a number of cavers from various Catalan caving clubs (32 people in total from 11 clubs with support from 6 equipment suppliers) to push on at various places in Vallina II over two weeks. After establishing a supported camp in the cave, team members resurveyed north out of the New York Gallery up to the northern choke. Pushing through, they encountered a streamway that gained 30m altitude to meet another choke after 145m. The northwest streamway was also pushed up a climb into the Galería Maña, 289m of high level passage including an 18m climb into the Sala Superior - at 350m altitude, about 30m above the stream.
The length of Cueva Vallina is now 35462m. (The South Vega System is currently 34783m in length.)
