The Stomach (external link) by Ryan Maurer (external link) on Flickr
The Stomach. This room formed on a fault line and slopes over 30deg above horizontal. Portions of the ceiling are in fact the overlying Mauch Chunk Sandstone.

The Cemetary (external link) by Ryan Maurer (external link) on Flickr
The Cemetary: a breakdown pile in the main passage of the Lower Cave. Note the stepped ceiling, this is near the contact with the Loyalhanna and the Mauch Chunk Sandstones, the stepping is from the down trending passage.

Caleb in the Cascade passage. (external link) by Ryan Maurer (external link) on Flickr
Caleb Slagel in the Cascades Passage. Here the passage cuts through the entirety of the ~55ft thick Loyalhanna Limestone. The Burgoon Sandstone is on the floor of the stream with the Mauch Chunk peeking in the ceiling.

C&C Welcome.
