The entrance lies under a sandstone bed in a depression. A crawl at the base leads to a 12ft climb to a continuing, draughting passage, although this was found to be too tight at Easter 2006. It was thought worthwhile returning to excavate the floor - see sketch.

In January 2013, the sand at the bottom was excavated and entry gained into a rift passage with a twitching bat. There was no clear way on.
