The entrance is situated under the scar on the true right bank of the gill 46m downstream from THE BOREHOLE

A low crawl followed by a small drop leads to the start of a narrow canyon, a tight sideways shuffle to a free climbable 3.7m pitch with two ways forward. At foot of climb, a narrow trench continues downstream to obscure junction after 15m. Here a slither up into aven chamber and route thorough bedding crawl emerges just upstream of 15m pitch in The Borehole.Downstream from obscure junction narrow trench continues past a few cascades to pitch entering partway down the 15m pitch in THE BOREHOLE There are presently no belays to allow a safe SRT descent by this route.
