LUSS Canadian Expedition 1994

Nine members of Lancaster University Speleological Society (LUSS) spent July in the Canadian Rockies searching for new caves. The main party was based in Crowsnest extending Yorkshire Pot and exploring the area. Two reconnaissance teams also attempted to search for caves around Job Lake but terrain and time were against them.

The full expedition report can be found in the Exploration section of the LUSS server.
