Description: A 30m entrance pitch drops to a ledge. From here, a further descent of 20m lands in a chamber with a lot of breakdown and boulders. A way on down a pitch/climb gives access to a final pitch of 6m. From here a hammered squeeze leads to an immature stream rift and another squeeze. [Space is visible beyond an echoing hole in the ceiling: the hole is too tight, but might be widenable.] Beyond the squeeze, a tube in the roof leads up for 3m before U- bending down to an impenetrable slot, while at floor level, very awkward, catchy rift leads to yet another impenetrable continuation with a very slight draught.
