Approach

Take the path from the spoil mound to the ruined ‘long cabana’ (see full details T107). The rift is close to the path about 130m S. of the reservoir and just below the spoil heaps of T102.

Entrance

Three large and obvious openings leading into rift (though the most easterly was partly obscured by snow in July 78). The entrances consisted of short steep slopes of loose stone and mud.

Description

 A mined out natural rift of about 55m and in some places reaching a height of nearly 4m. A steep loose slope in the centre of the rift leads to a 10m pitch which leads directly into T102.  
 
 

Reference

L.U.S.S. (1978)

Notes

T101 DC - easterly entrance snow choked, but also leads to T102 which was snow floored although didn't sound exciting
