Summary of site:

This is a tight, shallow cave entering into an upper series of passageways leading to a chamber. A sump blocks the way but diving leads on to over 50m of narrow, low, hands-and-knees passage and into a section where there are several roof domes (avens). Climbs lead to a 20cm high terminal writhe.
