   A 15m shaft with a small top. The pit has several ledges, one of which enters a large chamber via a 30m pitch. A tight meandering passage leads off.    An iron spearhead (25.5 x 3.2cm including 9cm for the shaft) was found on a ledge, 20m above the bottom of the shaft. Ruiz Cobo Jesús and Smith Peter et al, 2001 discusses the find and has two drawings. Illustrations are shown here.
