  Another entrance into site 0252 first noticed from inside the latter cave, located by subphones then excavated to provide an easier / closer entrance to a dig in 0252. See site 0252 for more pictures and a detailed survey.
   In the summer 2018, a possible short pitch was found unnecessary when a nearby crawl reached the base. The draughting dig at the end was also excavated and thought to be well worth continuing.
   Three trips in February 2020 working at the dig reached a rift and 15m of easy passage. A drop down in the rift was enlarged and the open c30m pitch was dropped into a lower series in the summer 2021.
   The drop is split into three: p7, p27 to a boulder then p6 to a climb down to an area of avens. These must bring in a lot of water in wet weather. Downslope, the passage enlarges (5m wide) at a T-junction then enters a tight, wet, draughting crawl which has been pushed with wetsuit hood. Upstream at the T-junction finishes at a wall of fill.
   Part way down the main pitch, a hole on the opposite wall requires investigation.
   The cave more-or-less lies over the Shrimp Bone Inlet / Rocky Horror junction in Cueva Hoyuca (0107) - the wet crawl about 60 - 70m above.
