Underground Description

Originally described here as 7m deep "Schwa Höhle 108": Horizontal entrance to a large chamber with narrow rift dropping away. Ends too tight.

However, a cave numbered 108 was relocated in 2004, which does not match this description at all. It's marked with paint "108" and has a spit in the centre of the "0". The spit isn't great, but there's a good chunky flake to use too. The shaft descends ~9m to a ledge. At this level there's a horizontal passage which leads immediately to a 4m deep blind rift pitch. Back in the main shaft, a few natural rebelays get you to a floor just under 30m down. At one end of the rift a draught emerges from rocks, but removing some rocks it appears it would need quite a lot of work to make progress and the continuation may be too small anyway. This cave seems a perfect match for the "deep sounding shaft" described as explored on 1979-08-05 in the 1979 log book.
