Underground Description

A fine pitch of 55m is broken by a ledge halfway down. The shaft narrows towards the bottom, and from the foot of the ladder, boulders lead to a choke a few metres further down.

    Marking Comment
    Number "B11" was repainted in 1988 (in red) and this is quite visible on flat rock to the SE of the shaft. Just next to it is the spit for the tag "CUCC 1976 B11" which is the point surveyed to. This tag was replaced 1999 with a new tag bearing the official Austrian number.

    Retagged 1999

    On plateau between B8 and the col, very difficult to spot from more than 5m away, but very noisy in wet weather.
