He's re-entering the muck to rest his muscles, and moving towards Gundrabu to help him with whatever needs mighty-thewed strength.

Kondor walks left toward the voice of Gundrabu on his tiptoes, his face out of the muck, his sinews throbbing from overuse. But within 5 ft. he slams into something solid about 3 ft under the surface!!

Gundrabu's voice now comes from Kondor's left!

Gundrabu treads sewage while holding on to the slab 3 ft below?

Will Kondor climb along the wall or drop fully into the muck?

Kondor will climb down to the muck and try to hold on to the wall So he doesn’t sink.

“Gundrabu, what is the splashing? We need to find a way out before the beast men discover us.”

He easily does just that as a fourth horn blast sounds, even nearer.

Kondor continues moving left along the vertical wall, his fingers and boots somehow finding the smallest of holds in the pitch black darkness!

oodm:  Impossible to tell in the dark. Gundrabu's splashings of the muck destroy distance hearing. and the wall seems to just go on and on.

Which he does, hanging on to the edge of the smooth slab, which is 3 ft under the surface.

You did smell something

Outside:

The other cave entrance is accessible across the rock face, without descending to the snow where tracks would need to be wiped. Gundrabu manages with the extra pack.

Within 10 ft of the opening, Kondor repulses at the intense musk emanating from within.



and inside chamber:

Kondor steps inside the cave opening. His lamplight shines on another natural hollow in the rock, this space at least 30 foot in diameter. The floors are covered in piles of needles from the the forest trees, though several apparent walks have been cleared toward three rear tunnels. The ceiling is domed but there is no refelective dust mural as in the cave's nearby twin.


The musk scent is extremely strong and repulsive, but its origin is not obvious. Kondor's keen ears pick up the sound of dripping water from the central tunnel.


and left  tunnel entrance:

Kondor's light leads the way to the tunnel opening on the back wall's left side. Cautiously he leads the esquimeaux through the cleared needles. The cave opening is only 5 ft high, so Kondor's stoops, craning his neck to see into the darkness. The foul smell definitely comes from this tunnel. The tunnel descends at least 10 ft over the lit 30 ft beyond the opening.

Another 5 ft forward underneath the 12 inch slab...

Gundrabu's hands connect with a vertical cylinder about 10 inches diameter. It feels ribbed or ridged.

The 12 inch edge is smooth and continuous to the left and right. Gundrabu takes a giant puff of air and swims underneath. His arms flail out in front of him in the pitch, feeling nothing.

Roll d6!

He cannot feel anything from his reach in the muck, I assume he will climb upon  and swim across it?

Feeling it 3 ft under the surface:  
the object is flat on top,
about a foot thick,
smooth on all sides,
and larger than you can reach in any direction.

There is a huge solid object under the surface which seems to have a flat surface.
