Description 

As you walk south around the long arm of the Grand Auditorium, known as Dragon Ridge, you will see a huge arch over a shallow cave set far back in the hillside. This is the First Cave. There are a good number of moderate gear and sport routes on the south-facing wall, including the superb Commissary Crack. The north-facing wall offers a number of intermediate trad classics as well. The Dragon Cave's fiercest and most-overhanging bolted problems are in the cave itself.

Getting There 

Between the Grand Auditorium and the Second Cave.

CAUTION: The lead bolts above the first ledge have broken before and should not be trusted!This is a super-classic climb. Retro-bolted in 2004, it still makes a better trad climb. Very little mandatory jamming.Start up the crack to the right of the short buttress that creates the choke-point between the huge boulder and the wall. Alternatively, you can start up the bolts to the left on Lower Commissary. Climb through the dihedral onto a grassy ledge - beware of loose rock!
