Notes  Indian cave or Redskin Cave is located 18 metres (60 feet) north of Sunny's cave. It was explored and its measurements were recorded by Scot A. Ensminger and B.R. Horncastle, in 1978. It is a much larger and interesting cave than bender's cave, but it is inaccessble, except by the use of rock climbing rquipment. The entrance is 15 metres (50 feet) wide, 2.5 to 3 metres (8 to 10 feet) high, and 2.1 to 6etres (7 to 20 feet) deep. Near the north side of the entrance, at the top slope, there is a 7.8 metres (26 feet) long crawlway to the west. This leads into a small room, 3 metres (10 feet) in diameter and 0.9 metres (3 feet) high. Two more crawlways lead from this room. One to the west is blocked by breakdowns in 1.5 metres (5 feet). The other, to the south, connects with a small room. A crawlway from this room, to the west, is blocked by dirt in a few feet. The cave contains small stalactites, romstone dams that are 5 centimetres (2 inches) high and flowstone. Near the south side of the entrance is another short crawlway which leads to a small room.
