- Head to Balkonhohle, but instead of descending the rope to the entrance ledge, continue up the slope until you reach a large plateau with a central valley and large flat depression. Head up the slope to the right of the large depression. 1623/277 is near the top of that slope, past numerous blind shafts.
- The entrance series continues down a narrow phreatic passage (also at 45 degrees) with a loose boulder floor. This continues for about 20m until a junction with two avens (one wet, one dry) and another choked 45 degree downslope. The phreatic passage continues downwards from survey station 8, becoming a long tube ramping down at 45 degrees with numerous offshoots and small avens. It ends at a 30m pitch that descends into a large breakdown chamber.
The chamber is divided in two by a boulder pile below the aven. A crawl from one chamber widens into a loose passage which then chokes. Gear tape was found here in 2017, which means a potential link through to 2011-01?
- Two entrances: one 8m pitch, and one 8m handline-able ramp. Both lead down to a sandy 45 degree slope, with another choked up entrance on the right hand side.

Three nearby entrances all connect and lead down a steep ramp to a 30m pitch then a 20m pitch into a larger chamber with no obvious continuation.
