Sima del Cañado was previously thought to be site 251 (for twenty three years). This is not the case: the farmer says that Sima del Cañado is "downhill" from site 251 and this where it was found at Easter 2003.
A large open shaft with a descent down a mucky gulley to a ledge with a boulder on the left at -7m. A slippy traverse still in the gulley reaches the second drill point at -21.7m.  A 29m shaft then drops through boulders at -20 and ends in a rocky floor with no draught. A parallel shaft chokes.
