    Marking Comment
    Originally marked "CUCC 90/4" in red, changed to "174" in 1991. An Austrian metal tag bolted to entrance in 1995.
    Situated on fracture bearing 044° which forms prominent banded cliff visible North of Top Camp on second low ridge.
    This cave is quite hard to find, even though the bearings get you very close. It is just below a cliff, which is almost the highest bit of cliff in the vicinity. The entrance is almost on the (E-W) axis on the ridge and the cliff faces SE. The number is easily missed.
