Fortuitous preservation has allowed researchers to collect textiles from the cave, two occupations of which are dated to the Pre-Clovis component.Stone artifacts from the earliest levels are made up of flakes, scrapers, and a tanged triangular-bladed projectile point.
Among the artifacts recovered from the site was a wall fragment from a basket with simple plaited elements, dated to 12,800-11,300 RCYBP.
There is also a single element of intentionally cut birch-like bark which is similar to the later plaited objects, but direct-dated to 19,600 RCYBP.
