The site has a powerful draught at times. Exploration and bolting in the summer 2008 were hindered by swarms of flies.
Exploration was extended over 5 days as first "not enough ladders" then "needs bolts" then "not enough rope" played their parts.
After passing through sandstone at the entrance, a 16m pitch drops to a mud slope and rock bridge. The following p5 has a narrow pitch head but quickly opens out, landing on sandstone blocks. A p11 with loose blocks all the way down lands at the head of a further drop (p12) and a passage which quickly chokes. The base of the p12 has a flat bottom and a narrow rift.

The site was collapsed - boulders and soil across the top of the entrance - when visited in the summer, 2011.

Other sites of interest in or around the depression over this end of Torca la Vaca include 3594, 3905, 3906, 3914, 3916, 3924 and 3925.
