A 15.6m pitch leads to the unstable, bouldery head of the second pitch of 12.1m. A mud slope leads to the head of the final pitch of 24m. This drops into a chamber with a calcite floor, a diggable stream sink and a climb to a possible continuation above.
The site was rediscovered in 2007 (temporarily as site 2785) when a track was opened up. Tackle, presumably from 1991, was found at the rigged head of the second pitch. A full re-exploration was thought necessary after the 2007 Life, Universe and Everything finds in Cueva Llueva.
Site 2786, slightly higher and a few metres to the south, links with Andando.
During the summer 2008, site 2786 was tackled up and surveyed to a point where it appeared to link with Andando. However, the explorer was not sure that a connection had been made as the cave was not recognisable on the survey. Over Easter 2009, the shafts were explored and surveyed as one site, 2786. The drawn-up survey and re-written description will appear in due course.
