UTM: 30T 477.67 4801.20

Lambert: 6334 9732

Map: tbd

Survey: OUCC 1967 » (known to be missing side passages near the entrance)

Description: Large cave (1000m) explored in 1966/67 by OUCC; See OUCC Report 1967 » (called ‘Penilla’ in that report).

Visits:

2000 – brief initial exploration

2001 – explore major inlet series on the right (with Spanish survey mark F7); this is missing from the survey and yet sources all the water in the cave – meaning that the main stream is completely unaccounted for

2003 – GPS

2007 – brief ‘warm-up’ trip

Other:

Worth another visit.
