Thank you very much Supertramp for the awesome cave that you shared. I will speak to my friend about this and hear what he thinks.
Do you know of a Cave in the lower area of Ships Prow pass then we will definitely walk the planned route as put up in the beginning of the forum chat.

You are welcome Espee. Unfortunately I am not aware of a cave in that vicinity. Agree with you that the route between the 2 caves via Cowl Fork in one day might be tough (but doable). The overgrowth crossing the Ships riverbed (on the contour path) is not too bad if you take the right line but from a total elevation gain / loss point of view (1475+ & 1475-) it might be a push.

What about the option of taking a light tent or sleeping out given good weather on night 2 instead of pushing to Grindstone Cave? That would give you a much easier day 2 and more of a day 3.

Hi tiska, yes we have considered carrying our light tents with us but my friend is looking for a true cave experience without any tents. It will also shed some weight if we do not have to carry any tents, but thanks for your comment. 

We decided to hike the following route below:
 Day 1: From Injasuti Base Camp to Marble Baths Cave
 Day 2: Marble Baths Cave to Lower Injasuti Cave
 Day 3: Lower Injasuti Cave back to Injasuti Base Camp

GPS tracks below if anyone is interested.
Thanks again for everyone's input.
Be blessed and enjoy the Berg!
