Entrance

10m inclined square-ish shaft

Description

Midge hole is a 10m inclined square-ish shaft leading to a hading rift some 8m high and 30m long. Much more decoration than you would expect causes a squeeze half way along, passed by climbing up, care required on other side, tooth paste covered walls! Sloping floor of rubble. Found in the top of a mini peak so not easily seen until right there. Named for the biblical swarm of midges I shooed out on exiting.
