Geocache Description:


SK: Hladanie tejto kesky Vas privedie do malo znameho prostredia v okoli vodnej nadrze Ruzin. Tato cast Volovskych vrchov, Ruzinsky kras, je nevelke krasove uzemie, ktore je charakteristicke velkym poctom jaskyn. Medzi najznamejsie patria Medvedia jaskyna, Antonova jaskyna, Mala ruzinska jaskyna, Velka ruzinska jaskyna. Vsetky lezia v udoli Maleho Ruzinka, v blizkosti modrej turistickej znacky.

Jedna z nich je znama aj pod nazvom, ktory dostala po slovenskom prirodovedcovi, pedagogovi a zakladatelovi slovenskej speleoarcheologie Samuelovi Rothovi (1851-1889). Je dlha 111m, 15 - 8m siroka a 4 - 0.5m vysoka avsak bez typickej krasovej vyzdoby. Uz v roku 1897 v nej nasli paleoliticke ohniska s kostami jaskynneho medveda. Jaskyna bola obyvana obyvatelmi bukovohorskej kultury. Na zadanych suradniciach najdete vchod do jaskyne. Vsimnite si v strede kamenneho muzika a od neho vo vzdialenosti 65 krokov najdete na pravej strane biely kamenny vodopad.

Keska sa nachadza na dne vodopadu pod kamennou platnou. Po uspesnom najdeni pridajte na ceste k vychodu kamienok na muzika.

Bezprostredne v blizkosti Rothovej diery sa nachadza aj mala jaskyna znama pod nazvom Pivnica s chudobnou krasovou vyzdobou.
