This is the area back in the trees, closer to the North Buttress than the Main Wall. The Cave is a highly visible feature once you are near it. The best bouldering in the area is in and around the cave, and one to two pitch trad climbs tackle its roof (5.0 to 5.10+).

Getting There 

Walk south along the rails to trails path, you'll see the chalk-up cave from the path.
