The water flows down into this depression below an abandoned barn from at least two resurgences, site 1617 and site 1666. A good stream sink against a 5m high limestone face, almost certainly feeding into Hoyuca beyond Cross-Over Crawl.
The entrance was dug out in the summer of 2001 to enter a flat out crawl that soon enlarges to a 4m high junction in a rift passage. Straight ahead, down a couple of small climbs, leads to a tight, possible dig in the floor. In the opposite direction the passage chokes in the floor.
In 2012, it was described as having "no obvious prospects" but, in March 2016, "a concerted digging effort would be needed, but it may be worth it".
The cave appears on the Cueva Hoyuca and the Four Valleys System Hydrology diagram.
