Approach

In depression adjacent to T68.

Entrance

Small draughting hole at farthest point from track.

Description

7m pitch to squeeze and 3m climb into small chamber. A rift leads off, this draughts strongly but is too tight.   2010 floor of rift dug out, 3 metres down until rift widens.  False floor in rift (possibly not thick). Crawl for 4 metres, 6 inch slot, where rocks rattle a long way down (20m very tight, then 20m opened up. Would take too long to cap.  Lots of dangerous big flakes. Possibly dig up false floor? 2011 - false floor dug up (1m deep) exposed shaft 10m tight, may open up. Ongoing. 201  
2 – constriction passed by AB – 60m shaft to floor.  No obvious way on, draft lost.
 
 Rocks and debris that had fallen down the hole was not viisble, possible parallel shaft? 2014
