   First documented as site X013. The working name is shown above until a local name is obtained.
   A large entrance to a resurgence cave. The dammed water outlet reaches a canal with deep, cold water after 30m. A tourist trip in the summer, 2019 reached a draughting rift. The site was dry at the entrance when visited in the summer, 2020 but produces copious quantities of water in flood.
   La Cambera reached the canal in January 2021 but didn't continue. Joint explorations should be arranged.
   The entrance position appears to be pin-pointed with mapas.cantabria.es LIDAR information at 447757, 4804104. A GPS reading 10m to the west, in the entrance gorge, was 447744, 4804104. A surface survey is required, possibly up to a field boundary next to the road above.
