Underground Description

Two entrances, one 5m lower than the other. Lower section is expanded joint at foot of step, 6m deep. free-climable to gain a choked floor. A small continuation leads to small space in rifty corner where rocks have not filled. Upper entrance is 2-3m diameter shaft 5m deep, also free-climable.


None, 8m handline would be useful.



The name is essentially spurious, but makes a change from bears, wolves and rabbits ;-).
