This cave features a roomy 20m pitch and a large descending tunnel. It is particularly popular with those seeking SRT practice and several alternative routes have been rigged. The cave forms part of the Priddy Caves SSSI, cited as an excellent example of a shaft complex draining a closed depression. It was entered by the BEC in 1954 following earlier work by WCC and Cambridge University Mountaineering Club.
