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 :-)

Everest might be closed to foreigners, a single Chinese commercial climbing expedition has been on the mountain for the past few weeks acclimatizing and waiting for a weather window to make a summit push. If they succeed, it would likely make them the only humans to stand on the planet’s high point this year. There has been little Everest news as of late, minus that involving 5G towers, but according to the Adventure Blog, the Chinese
Two Chinese teams on Everest launched their summit bids earlier this week. Pixabay photo. After Nepal and China completely blocked foreign access to Mt. 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.
