  A sink next to the road, fed from a fuente 50m away and 5m higher. This cess pit also takes the run-off from the farm above.

  A 5m pitch belayed to a log over a body-sized slot is bigger below, dropping into ankle depth mud/ slurry there is a possible duck in shit where the water flows. Strangely enough this has not been entered! To the west it is possible to crouch without crawling in the effluent. The passage continues for around 7 metres, ducking under a boulder which then opens up and is sandy underfoot before coming to an abrupt end. The fauna was of particular interest at Easter 2012 and unsurprisingly consisted of many fat spiders, an enormous toad and a portly salamander.
  A visit at Easter 2013 found conditions underground too uncomfortable to push any passage but it was recognised that the hole was easily taking a lot of water.

   A visit in April 2018 was abandoned when an endoscope camera broke.
