This site is currently out of the Matienzo Caves Project permit area.
   A short pitch or climb into a chamber with a hole between the boulders on the right. A 6m ladder descent leads to very tight rift that draught inwards. Originally marked 1.
   French cavers have opened up a drop of 1.5m to a narrow meander to enlarge. Some work was carried out to enlarge the route at the end of May 2020 and the originally nameless site was named Torca del Palo.
