The eastern of three entrances to the Orillón cave system. This is a 25m sloping shaft with a vertical drop at the base and is not the normal entrance (which is Orillonzuco - site 1162). The third entrance is Malbujero, site 1161. A possible fourth entrance is site 4201 although this has not been explored through. A complete resurvey occurred in 2015 and the system, including water tracing, is described under entrances 1162 and 1161.
