On the crest of the limestone outcrop, 100m southwest of Banged Resurgence is a steep four metre deep depression with a rift entrance at its foot. A scramble down over loose boulders leads to a five metre climb into Twin Avens Chamber. This consists of two six meter avens and has a small stream sinking in the rubble strewn floor. The stream can be followed up an almost vertical passage for six metres. Her the passage fragments into several smaller passages radiating on and up.

Below the five metre climb a dry crawl leads for nine metres to the dry lower entrance. On the leftis an oxbow that can be followed back round to near the start ogf the crawl.
