Due to a play of unfavorable circumstances the photographer could not descend into the cave to document the latest discovery - Metod and Marjan, today's excavation team, have hit the zone of loosely connected rocks. The tunnel, so far dug into solid stone, has now reached the collapse, with a promise of larger space and easier digging.
