CUCC 1979 (Tony, Andy C); 2004, 2006 (Olly, Jenny)
A large entrance visible from a considerable distance leads a few metres and turns a corner then apparently stops. However there's a crawl on the right with a squeeze over a boulder which then opens out into a chamber with an animal skeleton (possibly a Gemse). The passage stops a few metres further on. Reportedly looked at by CUCC as far back as 1976 but the earliest documented exploration appears to be 1979-08-05.
