The boulder slope inside the large horizontal entrance of
Steinschlagschacht was the source of the stonefall which caused
concern in 1983/4 during the initial explorations. More modern
rigging reduced this hazard considerably in 1997, but care is still
necessary on this section of the cave. Here Andy Atkinson and
Mike Baslington are scramling down towards the first pitch itself.
