Access

No known access restrictions.

Description

Unlike Daren, this short cave soon opens out into a chamber and a bit of passage with a squeeze before some more passage. This soon comes to an abrupt halt at the corkscrew a squeeze at an angle with a bend (the hardest part of the cave). After this the cave continues as almost a single passage through boulders with a boulder ruckle and a squeeze followed by a slight drop to break the system.

The cave name is Welsh for "Cave of the eagle's head".
