Al Fotos: Roberto F. García - Muchas gracias a Rupo!
First exploration of the cave Cueva del Piscarciano was in 1970. THe cave is a part of an extend system, associated with the Cueva de Las Vacas and the Cueva de Las Arenas.
The Spain Speleologist, members of the groups Niphargus and Edelweiss explored, mesuredand documented very well the cave system.
We were asked to help for further exploring in a syphon- because in there group were no cave diver.
The last dive was 20 years ago!
The name of the cave came from a bandit with the same name. The legende says, that he was hidden in the cave about 1920.
In winter the cave is totally floodet! Accordingly thick and slippery are the clay covering everything in the cave.
