• Incidentally, it's impossible to come out head first unless you cheat and use those newly installed handles.

Actually, head first (belly down) was always the best way to exit the cave.  Just had to reach for the rocks below.  Curious as to when the handles were added.  They weren’t there in the early 90s.  Miss J-4.  It was a surreal experience.  Thanks so much for posting the photos and the map!  Wondering if anyone has tried to enter J-4 recently?!

Wow awesome. Great photos, thanks SO much for posting.

Dudek, great to know someone was in there only a year ago.
I’m rather a bit older now, but I want to go back.
I used to visit J4 a LOT in the late 80’s when i was a student at PSU.

It’s funny. I distinctly remember navigating the Highway Step-Across on every occasion I visited the cave, but I look at those pics and CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE &*#% I WAS THINKING when I did it. Love the Wedding Cake Room. I remember leaving little mud statues we made there and seeing them on each subsequent trip. :-)
