Location: N 271,400; E 604,000. Area: 50 hectares, oval-shaped, 1,000 m by 670 m.
Access: 1,350 m along the Cascadoux Trace off the Mayaro-Manzanilla Road.
No tassik occurs and all that may be seen now are a few small cones on the apex of a hill that rises 30 m above the surrounding alluvium. Only one (A type) was slightly active when visited in 1968. No exotics have been found in the mudflow.
