  1. Id letter: '' Edit this entrance
    At break of slope between HSK and the plateau.
    Bräuning Nase 215°, Bräuning Zinken 234°, Schönberg summit 332°. This proved impossible to find in 1995 from these bearings which bring one to a point c 200m NNE of 1623/104 (easily spotted by the prominent split boulder above its entrance). The vicinity is hard to search owing to an excess of dwarf pine scrub and small cliffs.
