A good draughting dig. This was originally blocked by a boulder that was removed in 2014 revealing a strongly draughting narrow rift. A rope is useful to aid climbing out although it was laddered in 2015.
The base was too narrow to haul rocks out but one of the walls was susceptible to a hammer and chisel as shown in the video. A visit in 2017 probably extended the depth to about 14m. At Easter 2018, it was "cleared out" and some enlarging occurred in August.
A break-through occurred at Easter 2019 when, on a couple of trips, snappers were used to remove obstructions and a free climb gave access to a 4x4m chamber. There is a possible dig under a boulder in this chamber but it needs a hot day to follow the draught.
In the summer 2021, progress was made removing rocks in the roof of a constriction. A sandy floor with sandstone boulders appears accessible through a draughting dig in the floor
