   Shaft entrance marked by another group. 40m pitch to a floor with an undescended slot with its base apparently 6m below. No draught. There may be some confusion with this site and another shaft nearby (1995c).
   In 2001 the position was said to be correct.
   The site was explored at the end of July 2014 when cavers "went to the bottom", although there is no description or mention of a slot. A less obvious hole at the rear of the larger hole was investigated using trees for a Y-hang. This is described as about 30m deep with a "slot in the back corner at the base". The rope was too short. Apparently, the slot was "descended but doesn't go".

    During Spring 2021, the Club de Montaña y Espeleología La Cambera explored around the Alisas-Los Trillos area, rediscovering some MCP sites and finding new ones. They documented this site in their blog as LC204, naming it Torca del Torete and describing it as having a 12x5m entrance. A 1.5x1.5m hole to the northeast is about 25m deep. An alternative gird reference is 30T 0447485 4794139 altitude 665m.
   In their 2021 report to the Federación, the site had still to be descended.
