Discovered in 1972 by SCL this cave is the cave used by Lebanese cavers for SRT training. The sinkhole is situated approximately 300m north of Baatara sinkhole. It consists of a series of 4 pits nearly all measuring 40m in depth. It is a relatively easy sinkhole to descend and it is fully rigged with bolts. The SCl considers this cave as their training sinkhole as it is a good place to train new members.
