The first exploration of the avenues takes place in 1952, when they reach the underground water of the Lumea Pierduta, which is lost in siphon (-115m). Four years later, the junction between Gemanata and Black Aven is traversed and the terminal trap is reached at -135m in the Gumenata cave.

The cave network map of 1980 specifies the length of the network at 2487m. Today's complete crossing is impossible due to the top fallen stuffing. Downhill is dangerous due to logs. The mouth of the pot has a diameter of 20 m divided into two by a natural stone bridge. The first 40m vertical is followed by two smaller ones, reaching the underground river whose roar is heard even on the surface. This river communicates with the Negru vertical cave.
