Underground Description

A large low opening behind a large snow field soon develops into a large horizontal passage dropping to a choke after 50m. A climb up before the choke reaches a loose ramp. Uphill in the ramp chokes, whilst down the slope passes an oxbow toreach a drippy choked chamber. Opposite the point of entry to the ramp, a slot in the wall reaches an ascending ramp. To the left is a small inlet, and to the right is a pitch into the rift. A climbable bypass gains the roof of the drippy chamber.
