    Default I am looking for cave divers in the western US.

    I maintain a list of possible sump rescue divers. Possible candidates would have to be full cave, sidemount, and preferably with at least some "dry" caving experience. It is easy to find divers, but ones that can get to a sump inside a "dry" cave are hard to come by.

    I mostly need someone in California, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon.

    What is a dry cave, just curious... I guess, it is not dry suit related.

    A cave with very little water in it.

    The correlation between project caves, project cavers, and cave divers in these states is not strong. I think you'll find some of each, but the lack of limestone and too many competing activities makes it a hard fit.

    I would gladly be proved wrong though...

    I'm not in Arizona anymore, and I'm not sidemount, but I'd be more than happy to drop you a line whenever I'm home to help in any way I can. Full cave and IRATA Level 1, plus dry caving shenanigans during my younger days.

    I have a couple AZ divers, but contact me anyway.

    Forrest, I have some limited dry caving and sidemount experience but no sump. However, you can count on me for surface support and anything else I could do. I have taken Lamar's course if that is any help.
