Underground Description

The obvious way in leads to a 'Viewing gallery' over the entrance chamber, but descent this way would require tackle. Best way in is to the left where a freeclimb leads down a 10m ramp in a chamber. This is snow-choked in some years but in 1980 a dig opened a triangular slot to a 6m pitch into a smaller, boulder-choked chamber. This was reentered in 1987 and an animal skeleton was found and removed for the Austrian cavers. There is a very small, but draughting tube in the roof of this final chamber, going back towards the surface.
