Location of Thunder Canyon Cave?
by: Luca

I understand people read about this cave and want to go visit on their own. I am like you, I hate politics and kiss up to nobody.

But I am sorry to say you are doing it wrong. Joining the San Diego or SoCal Grotto is the only way to safely explore caves!

12 years ago I went to the Mud Caves on my own and licked them. Then found out about the San Diego grotto and went to check it out...
a) They loaned me gear
b) Taught me how to rappel and ascend
c) Took me to Hidden, Monte Verde, Rockwood, Thunder Canyon and many other great caves of San Diego

I've been happily caving for 12 years now, and all of it started when I joined the San Diego grotto. I am sorry for all of you that want to go out find the caves on your own... you are missing out... big time...

Luca,

Thanks for the honest and right advice, I would never enter a cave without a partner. I was just hiking around the area to find the entrance because I haven't been to McCain Valley before. Number one rule never go by yourself. I live in North county and my work and family schedule won't allow a 7 pm meeting on a Monday night. As I alluded too I have been doing outdoor activities my whole life.

I have a lots of info based on pictures from other peoples hiking trips on the internet for markers and notes I took while out there. I will continue to look just thought you could help me narrow down the search. But I totally understand that you want to control the flow of people into the cave and protect its location.

Thanks again,

Scott

You should never try to go to Thunder Canyon on your own... ALWAYS GO WITH SOMEONE THAT KNOWS THE CAVE...

I invite you to come to the monthly meetings of the San Diego Grotto and we'll schedule a trip to Thunder that you can join. Google San Diego Grotto for info on when and where the meetings are held.

Awesome adventure with a happy ending. Must have been so crazy to be in such a real situation amidst such a scary moment. I just moved here from Denver and love the outdoors and really want to go explore the cave. I was wondering if you could help me find the cave. I have been doing crazy amounts of research and went out hiking around the area did about 15 miles, beautiful out there. Though I can't find the entrance and I really would like to find it. If you could help at all that would be awesome.

I know people don't want the location publicized to keep the caves protected, so if you have any help could you please email me at rodman.scott@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Scott
