   This woodland site is in the Pistruellos area - they have been informed.
   A strongly draughting hole at the base of a cliff which was originally blocked with a boulder. A p10 down a rift with jammed blocks to a jammed boulder floor. A p5? follows with the curled-up skeleton at the head. At the base a 5m drop descends into a narrow rift with another pitch (unknown depth) in the enlarged rift passage to a short drop onto a debris slope in a "decent size" passage. Some exploration on this level has occurred with more leads to look at, including a draughting passage that can be dug.
   In October 2017, all leads closed down in mud-choked ends although two of the passages were connected to give a small round trip. A choke blockage dig in calcited mud and stone was also excavated and eventually it was possible to get partway into the continuation which turned out to be the bottom of a large space, with some large hanging death visible up in the roof. A return with capping gear is required. Surveying will occur at Easter 2018.
   The site was shown to Miguel from the G.E. Pistruellos in November 2016.
