The obvious entrance is on the southern slopes of Llueva, on the right of a path leading downhill from El Pilon - the deserted farm house at the end of the landrover track. The main belay is off a tree and a flake immediately over the edge into a rift curving to the left. A ledge has very loose boulders and a Y hang avoids these. There are deviations at -10 and -35m and the landing is one a boulder slope at -55m. The slope can be followed down to end in a hading rift. There are some nice helictites and stal.
This shaft has previously been confused with Sima del Canado. Canado (now site 1822, and explored at Easter 2003) is further down the hill.
