Ox Bel Ha - Jun 27
Dive Team: Danny & Franco
Surface support: Fred Devos
Name: Yax Chen
Coordinate: WGS84 UTM 451245 2226084
Conditions: The water clarity in the Yax Chen basin wasn’t exceptionally brilliant. There was heavy rain earlier on for a few days. This has affected the visibility tremendously especially downstream from the Yax Chen basin.
- Re-survey old Gary Walten line. This line is supposed to connect Yax Chen East to Ox Bel Ha.
- Re-survey completed ok around the L-Shape Cenote. This line confirms the link between OBH and YC east. OBH has now over 100 miles of surveyed cave passageways (539, 080 ft).
- More exploration in the YC area. This is a big cave with interesting features and tremendous potential for future exploration.
