A small but obvious hole opposite site 1754 leads 1-2 m down slippery mud and into a shaft of approximately 8-10 m depth. The landing is on a boulder floor amongst the bones of a dead sheep and some plastic sheeting. A few rocks were removed from the floor to find a false floor. To force a gap big enough to fit through, a dig through the decayed sheep carcass was required. This revealed the second half of the shaft.

The shaft ends quickly - filled with small, loose rocks approximately 6 m below the false floor - at this point the shaft being approximately 2 m wide. There is the remote possibility of an unpleasant and unpromising dig through these rocks in one direction - where the wall of the shaft appeared to start to bend towards the horizontal - however, this might be a waste of energy given the other promising leads in this region.
