Session code: OE16

Oral / Exploration, Main EuroSpeleo Conference

Mr Chris Jewell


In 2013 an international team of cavers and cave divers re-launched exploration in Sistema Huautla with an expedition to dive sump 9 and explore the sump area. Three years later in 2016 Chris Jewell was back in Mexico with another team, this time diving the Huautla resurgence. This talk will recap on the 2013 expedition and the logistics of diving in remote locations before unveiling the finds of this year’s expedition.


Chris Jewell has led and participated in caving and cave diving expeditions since 2002 including trips to Austria, Germany, France, Spain, and more recently Mexico. In typical CDG style he has combined the disciplines of caving and cave diving to explore sumps in remote locations.
