An alternative gird reference given in León García José, 2010. (Cantabria Subterránea. Catálogo Grandes Cavidades.) is 30T 0455500 4793700, Alt 280m.
Only partly descended by the Matienzo expeditions (the shaft is currently out of our permitted area), it has been fully explored by the F.C.M.E. group down to a depth of 132m.
Pitches of 25m and 41m are followed by a boulder slope to a final pitch of 35m, Pozo de las Ventanas, where one of the windows leads to a 12m parallel shaft. The altitude at the bottom would put it only some 15m above the Ogarrio resurgence level.
