A 15m stoop and walk leads to a 20m calcite slope which can be walked down on the left. At the base, on the right, a 10m pitch drops onto another calcite slope which ends at a calcite choke. On the left a passage leads to further choked pitches.

The entrance passage appears to have archaeological excavations, while the skeleton of a possible bear lies near to the mud formations at the base of the calcite slope.

A sediment sample was taken at Whit 95.
