A cave, possibly occupied during the Civil War, containing a choked 12m pitch. (Further illustrated information about the Civil War in the area can be found here.) To the right of the pitch is 40m of passage to a dig at another pitch top with a good echo and draught. Five hours was spent digging this out in 2009 and a 5m pitch was descended to a silt floor. Half-way down is a body-size tube that carries the draught. This is blocked after a few metres with a sandstone blockage that "could easily be dug with a hammer and chisel". (This has not been surveyed or included in the length.)

A live bullet was found in the cave in 1998.

The base of the pitch, tight meanders, has been enlarged by the Catalans and needs to be pushed.
