Follow the Sierra del a Corta track from the northern end (Monte los Joyos). Past T68/ T69 on right and continue until the path starts to get steeper and double back on itself. A cairn should mark the point to leave the track, and head for the 'obvious' clearing to the east and up. Route should bring to edge of trees onto limestone 'cliffs'. Traverse round to east. T553 is in large shakehole, that should be quite obvious when approaching.


Steep large shakehole, very grassy, northern side of hole exposed (no trees)


At very bottom of shakehole on the left is 6m pitch. Followed by 2m climb. Slot with bottom visible. Stones dropped go nowhere.

Slightly higher and to the right is a 19m pitch. At the bottom is an L-shaped chamber, 2 m wide, 10 m long. A 10 inch crack, with a slight draught, connects to the parallel T554
