Cross the Sobra Valley from the Sotres - Tresviso track, at the dam. Follow the Valle de Valdediezmo for about 2.5km, crossing the track to Beges. Before the path turns right to avoid an outcrop of bare limestone, there is a clearing, surrounded by a sparse beech wood. Leading from this clearing is another path which passes a gated cheese cave. Beyond this, turn left and continue over broken terrain for 100m.


The entrance is large, at the base of a small cliff and is reached by a steeply descending, leaf-covered slope.


A short pitch of about 5m descends into a fairly large chamber, 25m long, and 15m wide. The floor is covered with boulders, and all the passages leading out of the chamber close down after about 2-5m.  
N.B. The entrance of the cheese cave mentioned above appeared to draught quite strongly.
