   A large stream sink below a 2m sandstone waterfall. The pool drains into a low, tight passage. In drier weather, the outlet was seen to be very small so any work here would take a substantial effort. (Ref: 15A).
   Some work was carried out in September 2018 when water levels were low. The left hand side was dug to form a flat-out crawl under an overhang. A small chamber is reached followed by a descent to another slightly larger chamber then a flat-out squeeze into a chamber about 7m long, 1.5m high and about a metre wide. Holes in the floor can be descended but choke. The cave consists of a series of inverse steps with the other side rubble. It is "not worth the effort of digging".
