A draughting, excavated hole at the left end of a scar by a tall tree near site 1801. Just inside is a 6m pitch originally blocked at the top with bed rock. The cave at the base of the pitch links at a duck through to upstream Cueva de Entrambasaguas (Cueva de la Espada site 103).

In the summer 2010, an upstream route was found to be too dangerous through a draughting boulder choke along with a sandy ramp up to one side.

In 2011, surveying upstream in Cueva de la Espada probably entered the passage from 3222. See sketch.

At Easter 2012, the site was surveyed through to Cueva de la Espada.
