A strongly draughting dig (Boil in the Bag) below a limestone block.
Excavations were started in 1997 and it is seen as long term project. The
site is about 30m from the high level end of the 1999 Bollón (Volvo)
(site 98) extensions.
The site was opened up again and extended during 2005, 2006, at the end of 2008 and Easter 2009.
At Easter 2014, the squeeze at the 3rd drop down from the entrance was removed and a small chamber reached where the way on appeared to be in the floor.
Length and depth a guess. Should this now be surveyed?
