Probably first descended in 1983 but no account was written up. A wire belay marked NMCC was found at the bottom in 1999.

A 10m pitch / assisted climb down in an obvious shaft with a whitebeam tree leads immediately to a 31m pitch head, partialy blocked by boulders. Landing on the floor, the way on is down a narrow 3m pitch / climb whilst to the left and right there are two small side branches that quickly end. A squeeze through a rift leads to an 6m shaft followed by a 3m climb.

The cave ends at a narrow S-bend which was passed in 2006 to a 3m pitch into a blind chamber.

The site carries an alternating draught and is rigged mostly on 8mm stainless studs. 40m of rope from the entrance shaft Y-hang will reach the floor above the squeeze.
