map using leaflet map:
Follow the old tramroad from Pant-y-rhiw to a sharp right hand bend. The entrances are all in the projecting spur on the left
The cave is popular with Activity and Adventure groups. Water from the right hand series flows to Ace of Spades Chamber in Agen Allwedd.
The large main entrance leads to right and left series and straight on through a squeeze (the cheese press) leads to a chamber with a boulder choke at the far end. Digging continues to the left of the choke and above it in the upper series called the Warren.
