The Sobra Valley has a significant track (part concrete in places) that runs east to west through the valley. Follow the track west. The track forks opposite the Cueva de la Marniosa entrance, on the left, and the higher (right-hand) track continues further up the valley. Follow the track until it turns left and starts to head downwards. A less distinct track continues west up the valley. Follow this track for around 385m until the tree cover is met. Turn off the track and head up the hill in a south-west direction for approx. 170m to the entrance.


An obvious 10m diameter shaft


An obvious 10m diameter shaft contains a dry stream bed, entering on the southern side. This can be descended as a 5m pitch into the main pot. The sink is choked with logs and organic debris but would appear to take a stream in wet weather. The northern end drops down further into a possible area that could be excavated but would take a large amount of work.
