258 - Tunnocks -> Apfel Strudel

Mon 06 Aug 2007

My first ever cave in Austria, descended down very loose boulder slopes to large pile of snow at bottom of pitches, fun sledging down. First ever injury in Austria soon followed, jumping to avoid boulder fall and landed on lovely smooth icy floor, same effect as banana skin! A fun but painful trip followed. Found Apfelstrudel section of cave; best bit was a chute that looked like a bob sleigh run, great going down, tricky on the way out. Ended survey at exciting junction, pitch on one side, stomping passage on the other. Back up pitches & down to top camp for introduction to Holy Hand Grenade [Hungarian-donated alcoholic beverage].
