Cave 9
Added in

There are two main entrances to Cave 9, as well as two other entrances both placed on the same ledge in the Sinkhole.

In the most southern part, there is a wall that can be blown up in order to grant access to Cave 1 - Dead Cave. Multiple walls in Cave 9 can only be scaled with the Climbing Axe, which is found near the center. The player should take care not to fall into the deep pit in the center of the cave while attempting to cross around the ledges.

Cave 9 contains several cannibals, as well as several mutant babies.
