The information below has been roughly translated from the French, Spéléo-Club Dijon reference, Simonnot G, 2016.
Lying in the Linares area, this is a magnificent sink receiving the waters of the ravine that runs through the grasslands to the west.
At the foot of a large rocky area and its limestone barriers, the entrance is in the underlying sandstone beds. A large, collapse gallery (5-7 m) can be followed over slabs for twenty meters. At the top right, a passage enables progress of 10 m. But most interesting is at the bottom left: a continuation of 2.5 m overlooks a small passage with small pebbles washed by the water that eventually partially obstruct the route after a dozen meters (-13 ). A small draught is sometimes felt.
Note: The water of the ravine that feeds the sink has been diverted to the Bustablado valley at the time of the establishment of the new road (2009?)
The cave was first explored by the ECT (Tortosa) then extended by the SCD in 2010 with some unsuccessful digging at the end in 2011.
