Map: 55 1/2
Right bank of the river Aisne, about 100 metres downstream of the crossing of the roads to Bomal, Villers-St-Gertrude, Manhay and Heyd, in a small quarry just besides a house.  Please take care not to disturb the owners of the house, and to park your car at a convenient spot!

HISTORY:
The cave entrance was revealed thanks to a small quarry.  It was the Groupe de Recherches Spéléologiques de Comblain (GRSC) that started digging in September 1985, and discovered the cave exactly one year later, in September 1986.

ACCESS:
Salle AnnetteThe cave is gated because of its very nice and well preserved formations.  Normally, all visits are guided by the discoverers of the cave, the club GRSC.  Contact Paul Xhaard.  You can obtain his coordinates at the Union Belge de Spéléologie. 

DESCRIPTION:
Length: 588m,  Depth: 34m
It is a small cave, developing in a cube of appr. 60 x 90 x 34 m, but nevertheless totalling  nearly 600 m. of cave passages, due to the very complex nature of the cave.  It consists of several parallel rifts, often very close to each other.  The cave begins with a narrow 14-metre pitch and features a couple of well decorated rooms.

RIGGING:
A ladder or rope can be useful in the P14 (entrance).  However this pitch can be free climbed as well.
