Expedition Hoher Göll'95
Expedition organized by Sekcja Grotolazow Klubu Wysokogorskiego from Wroclaw.
05.08.95 - 01.09.95
Camp was situated in lapiaz in lower part of wild Grutered cauldron at ca 1580m over sea level.
Main aim was continuation of exploration in Koboldschacht, cave famous of very narrow
meanders; also ridgewalking in three areas:
- nearby the entrance of Koboldschacht,
- nearby Schonbachkopf peak,
- in Barenstuhl cauldron.
Beautiful weather at the begining of
our stay in Hoher Göll quickly became a nasty one. Intensive rains,
cold winter, foggs and even snowfalls made ridgewalking difficult.
Raise of water level made exploration unfinished.
But during expedition:
- in Koboldschacht discovered ca 400m
(now it is 2050m) beyond "Wybiegi Sloni" but high level of
water prevented from following.Cave was deepened 3m (now it is -679m)
- in Kimmelschacht, new cave situated over Koboldschacht entrance,
reached -103m [only few
meters separate from Koboldschacht. Snow plug stopped the exploration]
- Discovered Ogrschacht where in last day of
stay in Hoher Göll descented ca -580m (-554m was surveyed)
- in the cauldron near Barenstuhl discovered a few caves.
The two most interesting are: Bienenschacht and
In Bienenschacht exploration was interrupted in very narrow well.
Tatzelwurmhohle (entrance in ca 1700m over sea level, 20m over Bienenschacht)
is a complex of passages and wells.
