Approach

NW slope of Samelar. From the large hairpin bend on the track leading to the Vegas de Andara (SARA Depression) from the Beges track. Walk SW up the gulley on the side of Samelar and to the 2000m contour.

Entrance

Natural rift 2m x 10m (1980 - describes at 20m x 20m ciruclar shaft)

Description

At the north end of the rift, a small hole between the snow and the rift wall, leads to a 10m pitch to a stony floor, between the snow and the rock. Following the wall both ways lead to a snow choke. A small natural hole at the base of the pitch leads to a 2m round chamber with no way on. (1980 - snow plug 10m down, 10m undescended climb - worthwhile)

Reference

L.U.S.S. (1981)
