A small resurgence cave in a wooded depression close to the main river. After walking / stooping through water, the passage turns to the left and rises steeply to a small, deep pool. This was dived by Phil Papard in 1997 and becomes small 4m down and 15m in. There may be a way on under water.
An oxbow on the left in the main passage is very tight and is an unsurveyed 15m.
The survey has yet to be drawn up, Toby / Jane.
Site 3357, Cueva del Nabo comes very close to the sump. The entrance of Fuente de Culebro has been GPS'd but the position (30T 0449756 4801181; ETRS89: 30T 449654 4800972) has been changed by inspecting a satellite photo.
The upstream water, beyond upstream Cueva del Nabo has been dowsed. See Cueva del Nabo for details.

There is a small resurgence downstream of this one, pictured here.
