Also known as Skeleton Shaft or SSSS-32-P, when explored by SSSS in 1949 it consisted of a 35m deep narrow, steeply sloping shaft leading to a short section of natural passage. Later records showed it to be blocked at a depth of 3m and it now appears to have disappeared altogether.

Alternate Names: Skeleton Shaft, SSSS-32-P
