DESCRIPTION:

4.7 metre entrance pitch behind which there is a lower, but rather inaccessible second entrance.

A short climb leads immediately to the second,9.8 metre, pitch. Daylight enters through a hole visible from halfway down the pitch. The pitch brings us into a large chamber and a few metres of sloping floor lead to the third pitch, 4.7 metres long. The floor at the bottom of the pitch is very loose rubble. Going right here, leads to extensive, but unsurveyed passage. To the left downward sloping passage leads to a crawl through a low but wide chamber, with a loose floor. Thenceforth we come to easy walking passage which has obviously been mined. There is a very high ceiling and high level passages lead off on either side. A three metre climb is followed by more walking passage and a squeeze through some collapsed mine props- leads to the first pitch in Sara.
