Cave of the Winds is located around 4,000 feet on Mount Mansfield. The cave is developed in an albite-sericite-chlorite-quartz-magnetite schist of the Hazens Notch Formation (this information taken from the published cave map). The cave consist of an enlarged crack that extents 208 feet horizontally and 80 feet vertically. There are two rope drops of 20 and 30 feet. The bottom of the cave was filled with ice.

This image was taken using natural light from the entrance. The first pit is just beyond Manuel.
