A small cave first spotted by drone, and a few metres west of Torca del Dron (site 4669). An open, slide-in entrance leads to south-heading hands-and-knees crawling to an enlargement with a smaller passage off to the east. This is sideways squeezing for about 8m to where it turns to the north, back out of the hill, towards Torca del Dron. There is a pitch ahead and boulders could be heard falling when the shaft top at Torca del Dron was being cleared.

A further inspection at Easter 2019 suggested that this route is too tight and awkward to be a second entrance to Dron and that any excavation in the floor would take days.
