From Bejes you have to go to the Panizales wineries and from here to Collado de las Ceacinas. The torca is past the Cueva del Río cave and 50 m before arriving on the left bank of the river Panizales. It is along the right side of the road.


It is a meander that begins with a entrance of 1m by 1.5 m


Descends between blocks and meets a water course that goes to a chamber with two possibilities: a climb 6 m between blocks or continuing descending with the water to several pitches P8, P10 and P12
The cave then becomes complex at a series of windows to interconnected meanders, and around 136m of passage.
