No description currently available Entrance


The chasm begins with a 12 m shaft that leads to a sloping chamber. Going down the ramp you come to a 3 m pitch that ends up blocked. Going up the ramp a window leads to another 8m pitch with bad and loose rock, leading to 20 m pith.

At the base of the pitch, a small meander is 6 meters long to a 10m pitch, that immediately connects to a 101m pitch.

Once at the base of this pitch, a climb to a window leads to a 93m pitch, which is wide (approx 10m diameter) and has numerous windows down the length.

The base of the pitch is a fairly large chamber. Going up reaches a window, and down to a 1m high ledge, meeting some water and a 15m pitch. This leads to a another 5m pitch to a 35m pitch

At the base of the 35m the stream is lost in a high and narrow meander. Later the meander opens at a P45 and continues until it opens again on a P30. At the base of this pitch, the river disappears into a very narrow meander / rift
