Cavity that opens its entrance in the Paré de Yuja, in the homonymous channel.


Ascending rift


This cavity, of little development, is an ascending duct, which initially has large dimensions, reaching the ceiling at the entrance almost 20 meters. Gradually these dimensions diminish until they become impenetrable. Easy to access, and with ideal conditions for use as "cuerre" for cattle, it has been used since time immemorial until almost today by the shepherds of Portudera.

The cave has a second entrance of small dimensions, which penetrates through the upper area of ??the same in its intermediate sector, this conduit is partially hidden by the vegetation on the outside.

The cavity offers results of 17 meters of positive slope and a development of 46 meters. Scan completed
