For May 1st, I also wanted to see if I could add Kauniainen to the map with regards to having mapped caves.
The only roadblock is that there aren't really any caves in Kauniainen :-) No matter, there are some small roof caves and boulders.
Or at least I thought so... I didn't find the boulder that I am sure I have seen, one that has some space underneath.
Coordinates and maps of the caves are as follows:
- School cave 1:N 60.21657 E 24.70556(cave map).
- School cave 2:N 60.21625 E 24.70372(cave map)
- Boulder cave:N 60.21082 E 24.68408(cave map)
The school cave 2 is also known as the janitor's wife's cave, because she apparently does not like if you park your car in the school parking lot :-)

Out of nowhere, the iceberg flipped with them still on it, tossing them into the frigid

Everest for this climbing season during the COVID-19 pandemic, two Chinese teams were allowed on the mountain. One team is a commercial expedition, while the other is a group of researchers who are there to make the most accurate survey the mountain yet while there is no traffic on the peak.
