    G.7:
    As per your spelunking equipment goes,
    All that you mentioned is very good for GOING DOWN!
    But!
    Do "U" have a couple of " ascenders " ?

    In case, we don't find a ground level exit !

    Cptbil - fyi Here's what the Mountain looks like inside, unfortunately these went until they were no longer passible; just got too small. But there was air movement like it was breathing; and comfortable. But it felt very "hollow".

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    I used to wonder why you hear the stories about how somebody found a cave, yet failed to explore it, decided to come back later.. or get somebody else. It's fine as long as you can walk in and know exactly where you came in; but think about it... when it gets small and tight; and steep. How easy would it be to squeeze through this hole? Physically? Mentally? Not knowing if and who is watching? What if the batteries died? what if the rope came loose? Yall be careful!

    To come down is easy; it's the going up! Me doing what I love.. And Dad.
    Hey Cbil
    Yep... the Jumars are those rachet type asenders. You put a foot sling on them and hold one while you slide the other up the rope, step up and repeat... Hey.. ITs STILL VERY DIFFICULT. I also have about 100 feet of steel ladders in 10 ft joints up there....

    It's been many, many yrs since I last did "rope work"
    And!
    I don't that think my partner, Doc, has done any
    So!
    I am thinking that we'll both have to go back to school !
    Although, I 've had lots of experience, back a ways ..
    I used to work for Magma Copper Co. ( 2 yrs) in Superior Az
    As, "The Jr Geoglist" back in my college days
    "MAGMA" is one of the HOTTEST Mines in the world
    The "wall rock" after a "blast" is 160 *
    That's HOT!
    I used to be the "Tour Guide" for visiting engineers/geologists, etc
    The mine at that time was 5000' deep
    It was a real experience! let me tell You!

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    The light colored lines
    Look to be natural, a vein of some sort of material
    The Dark strain looks to have been caused by water, slowly flowing down the rock
    Water frequently does this
    Usually caused by a small "spring", a "seep"
    The bluish green & the yellow are a type of lichen (Growth)

    I've responded to your original query in a roundabout way here:

    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,152539.0.html

    Your Dad was very considerate to do a rubbing of that rock, it's one of the least invasive to duplicate the contents of this type of writing.

    This is probably/perhaps (?) Coahiltecan writing which is very surprising considering it's location. It is almost certainly not Apache nor Anasazi, both of which I would have expected considering the geographical location.

    It is such that from clovis forward is in the area of the caballo mnts. Have seen writing that is at least jay bajada period as well as even posible olgam. Speeling..
    Oh well, lol. looking at such with that idea of natives to the area it is such that the marks being canyons and work areas etc make for some reason.

    LostCauses:
    Is your mention of:
    "Olgam"
    In reference to "Ogam" writting?
    "Ogam", of course, is "Celtic" (writting) in origin, thousands of yrs old!
    AND!
    Yes!
    It is found in and around and up & down the Rio Grande River
    & Southern/Central New Mexico
    There are perfect examples of it, "Ogam", in "The Rincon Mnts",
    ie:
    the very southern end of The Caballo Mnts!
    I mention this "Ogam" site, "The Rincons", because it is easily visited/viewed !
    Of Course, You might have noticed my phrase of "Thousands of Years old "
    Yes!
    This Predated, "Old Chris" by some 2000 yrs or longer !
    But!
    It's right there in plain sight! :P

    It is such that a lot of stuff happened before chis. ROTFLOL.

    A dot slash or dash system of writing may be such as to a basic usage across a lot of years. It was just a simple way of marking a name or other information.

    the reason it took years to even think it was a form of writing is it was a common thing to be seen.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    I'm not real knowledgeable on the low land Indians. If I recall the Coahiltans were coastal into Mexico? Anything is possible though and over the thousands of years they probably all followed the Rio Grande and had been everywhere. I do believe the pre-Aztec were New Mexicans at one time. They followed the Sun south to find out where it went every fall, and ended up down there..
    Down past Judge Roy Beans place Dad went with some buddies to go jug fishing on the Rio G. He found a cave there up a bluff that had several stone metate's and a Sabre Tooth in it, with marked up wall. That was back in the 50's and such just wasn't as big a deal, so he left it there and was gonna go back later; never did.
    Might have been Coah's.
    The stone I posted was found in the Caballos foothills out in the open and was probably displaced. It is fairly soft thus I don't know if it would have survived the elements for more that a couple hundred years, but it's sure possible.... thanks for the reply.

    Reply to Captbld topic #63 Posted symbol...from my experience it looks to be a marker to church treasure or next sign.... follow the arrow and the three (3) hash marks would either 3 varas or 3 leagues ( a league 2-3 miles each). That is....If the sign is Real or is it someones idea of laughing at the rubes...looks to be rather fresh for something hundreds of years old....I'd be real suspect!

    Has anyone seen and old NM map or know of a renamed a lost Canyon.... name of.... "Cable" Canyon.

    Cable Canyon is hardly lost. Sec 10, T16S, R4W.
    ​Adios, amigos - it's been interesting.

    The 1996 USGS 7.5' Topo that I have shows it as "Flordillo Canyon" with "Bat Cave Canyon" to the North. Of course, it's really "Cable Canyon" to those around here. In Cable you have to go up through the crack to get above the box canyon where the cable goes; or at least that's what I remember from years ago when the "Property of the US Army" boxes were still stacked under the big Cedar. Worth a visit to the area just to see Bat Cave close up.

    Update with 2007 picture at box end of Cable Canyon looking due West toward Caballo Lake and the Black Range.
