Windloch Sackdilling

Was in Windloch Sackdilling cave again last night. Weather wasn’t so good, so the best thing to do is go underground. The ice-stalagmites have grown quite a bit and are pretty cool looking. I only had 1 SB-800 flash with me and no tripod as I wanted to keep things light while down in the cave, so I couldn’t do too much. But hopefully I can head back sometime this week with all my lighting gear (it’s pitch black, no natural light) and see what I can come up with. The ice is only in the first part of the cave, so no rappelling required to get there.

    Hey! Gibts da unten zur Zeit mehr Eiszapfen als das letzte mal? Als wir dort waren, sahen die Dinger ziemlich kümmerlich aus. Ich muss dir demnächst mal ein paar weitere, richtig schöne Höhlen in der Gegend zeigen. Hab aber leider zur Zeit viel zu lernen…
    Viele Grüße

    Thanks for the info. Haven’t heard anything about restrictions on caving in winter and judging from footprints in the snow, quite a few other people are also unaware of this. Searched a bit online (in English and German) and couldn’t find anything, other than more pictures of Windloch S in winter. Where would one find about about this, as all the people I asked had know idea. I guess I’m lucky you don’t have vampire bats here, might have been dangerous for me as well… 😉
