This is a meandering river cave with mud banks whose upper slopes are of boulders and mud set cobbles. This cave was entered at a resurgence dam and after about 400m there is a large boulder chamber where the river flowed through some minor rapids.
Following this is a section with more rapids and meanders before the river breaks out into daylight and a large doline. After a further 200m the sink is met. Throughout the cave there are possible side passages leading off. Due to time constraints no detailed survey was produced of the cave. However, a BCRA grade 1 sketch was made. Local fishermen make use of the cave.
