The entrance slope is a pile of festering rubbish. This leads to two circular halls, one of which contains a 7m blind pot. Routes become too low after splitting into two parallel passages.
In 1994, both prehistoric and medieval pottery were found in the passage before the first circular hall. These and black markings are described in Smith 1998b and summarised in Ruiz Cobo Jesús and Muñoz Fernández Emilio et al, 2009 and Ruiz Cobo J and Muñoz Fernández E, 2013.
