Scouts Explore Rare Granite Cave Near Yosemite

A group of Boy Scouts from Troop 709 in Morgan Hill, Calif., explored Millerton Cave, a mile-long underground passage full of twists and turns, cold water too deep to stand in and narrow, I-can-barely-squeeze-through-there sections, not far from Yosemite National Park in central California.

Take a look at the following video of the Scouts exploring the cave, and then find out more in the May 2011 issue of Boys’ Life magazine.

Above Ground Preparedness

The Scouts wore wetsuits to protect them from the cold water, harnesses to keep them from falling and helmets to protect their brains.

The Descent

The entrance to Millerton Cave is no more than a crack in the ground, followed by a descent into total darkness.

Tight Spaces

Millerton Cave presents a variety of challenges, including tight squeezes, tight crawls, and more tight squeezes.

    That must be fun was it a hard way out?was it like a one way path to the end:?

  2. Next time get a permit. It’s the first rule of caving. Respect the landowner.
