Approach

The entrance lies at the NW edge of a 50m wide doline 200m ENE of Invernales de la Caballar,

Entrance

A stream sinking at the southern edge of the doline.

Description

A chamber is followed by a 117m pitch, which is conveniently split into four, the last of these taking a trickle of water. An active passage can be followed for 100m to a tight crawl, while near the big pitch a traverse leads to a large abandoned passage with some breakdown and profuse development of miraballite formations up to 4m(?) long.
 
A further seven dry pitches lead to an active main stream passage which  terminates shortly in both directions in sumps.
