THREAT VULNERABILITY: High
Stefan and myself walked through Harties 1 cave from one end to the
other, following the main part of the cave around to the right and to
the other entrance. We found that the two entrances were not far apart.
I explored a bit within the middle of the passage, scrambling up an
incline and finding myself in a perhaps 1m diameter crawlway. I went
a little way and came across a green beer bottle. It seemed that a local
had come this far before and left this item to mark how far he'd come.
Perhaps if I'd gone further on, I might have run into the same passage
that Ivor and Elizabeth had found. Further exploration is needed.
