To Cave Bottom


43854. View of neatly stacked empty buckets and about a third of a cubic meter of rocks in the mid-cave depot from below



43844. At the bottom of the collapse ...



43845. ... a horizontal tunnel, about 3 m long starts, a bypass of the collapse



43846. Towards the end of the tunnel ...



43848. ... a closer view reveals that the left wall is not solid ...



43849. ... there is a niche in it.

43851. There are many small openings among the rocks, and a closer view in the direction of the tunnel ...



43852. ... also shows a solid ceiling. Which means that further digging could be done without the fear that it would trigger the collapse movement. The draft in the cave was constant, all the way from the entrance to the bottom, but it was hard to say where it disappeared in the collapse.



43853. View out from the end of the tunnel - the photographer was positioned legs to the end.
