A cave opened up on land south of Cruz Usaño and explored, surveyed and extended with the permission of the land owner.
The excavated entrance drops straight into a decorated chamber. The only exit is down a passage up to 4m wide and 5m high - an old phreatic route. The passage closes in at the bottom after 50m. The way on is up a roped 4m climb on the north wall. A low crawl enters a chamber with a collapsed middle and a low passage that swings back to link in near the top of the climb.
The wide, sand-floored route out of the chamber was excavated and, after passing under an "airbell", reaches a higher section then closes in at a solid calcite blockage after about 40m. This Galería del Gato has many cat prints. Some digging has been carried out in a side passage at the start of the Galería.
