Approach

Follow the indistinct path leading off from the main track toward the Sobra Valley, just past the last house in Tresviso. The path leads to a cabana after 0.5km of descent. The entrance is 70m south east of the cabana on the downhill side of a large boulder.

Entrance

The entrance is very difficult to find, being low, narrow and in the bank.

Description

After a short, tight, entrance section, the cave passage opens up a little and descends to a choke. A passage taking off on the right, leads past a shaft (not descended) to a climb up a mud bank and 5m high vadose passage.    
At the end, a crawl reaches a low, well decorated chamber. The passage continue s low and starts to ascend. A shaft is passed by an awkward traverse to a more roomy continuation and a further shaft (10m not descended). A passage on the left leads to another pitch and a series of choked rifts.   The cave was discovered and explored by the people of Tresviso and may be part of an old resurgence. Descent of the various shafts may lead to further passages as the cave draughts strongly.
