From Caseton de Andara go towards the Pozo de Andara (Lake Depression), then take the obvious path on the left, prior to entering the Lake Depression proper and follow the track through the Mazarrasa mine area. Continue along the obvious track, past Pozo del Castillo and underneath the Pico Grajal. The track passes an obvious mine entrance, marked with RCA-22.


mine entrance, with higher entrance visible directly above Entrance


Obvious mine entrance, with a higher entrance visible directly above. Main mine adit is 45m long and blind, but obvious fork on the left, 10m inside entrance, leads to a precarious wooden floor and an undescended pitch of approx. 10-20m. Potentially adit continues over the far side of the pitch.

10m back from the pitch head is a steep climb up to a junction. Straight on exits in the second entrance. Turning right descends into natural cave, with some evidence of water but no apparent way on
