WARNING


 

The entrance is situated under the scar in the stream bed 1.5m upstream of SLIT SINK, and covered by a slab of rock. A tight awkward slot, which is best entered feet first is followed by a low passage to a 2.4m climb down into a small chamber. Beyond the passage narrows to an awkward squeeze at the head of a 4.5m pitch which drops into a large canyon passage. Walking size passage soon narrows to a tight trench which ends at a junction with the main passage in THE BOREHOLE just upstream of the 15m pitch.
Tackle - 8m ladder; 3m belay; 9m lifeline; 8m rope; natural belays
