Uncertain. Rediscovered CUCC 1987
Entrance shaft of 50m until gap between snow and rock became too perilous in 1987 - bottom still out of sight. About 12m below the karren, a rift passage leads off from side of shaft into parallel shaft with aven. This shaft is about 9m deep, with no way on at the bottom. In 1987, it reportedly had recent looking bolts of unknown origin - the most likely explanation is that the cave had been looked at by GSCB who were in the area on a reconnaissance in 1986 (?) and more seriously in 1987. In 2012, only one bolt was spotted at the top of this pitch, less recent looking, but still usable.

- Marking Comment
- Documentation says tagged in 2000 but no evidence of a tag. Tag placed 2006.
- "about 6m above Laser rangefound point 0/5" (which is above gully containing Kat. 107 and marked with an alloy tag stamped "LASER 0-5"). The cave was looked for but not seen in a visit to this laser point in 1998. It was relocated in 2001, visible to the right of the route up to 204. It was marked with faded yellow paint.
