018 degrees from Mancondiu Peak. 256 degrees from Beges Road, level with bend in track.


N.B. Although apparently labelled T78, it is not the cave description of T78 that can be found in the journals. At base of 40ft escarpment of limestone. Entrance through boulder roof collapse.


One bolt at entrance, rebolted half way down ('96). Approx 12m pitch into roomy chamber, immediately onto another 15m pitch.
From ledge upwards leads to apparent digging and down rejoins pitch, but on the other side of the pitch the chamber appears to continue. At base of pitch continues on to cairn, either limit of previous exploration or the way on.
