Nestled along the basalt cliffs of the Blackfoot River lies Crank Cave. Originally scouted out and developed by Chuck Odette and Dean Lords in the early 90's, the cave yielded a couple of routes and sat dormant for some time. New development began in the winter of 2006/2007 and has boosted the current route total to 10, with plans for more.
Located about 9-10 miles east of the town of Firth, ID along the Wolverine Canyon Road. When you come to the "Rattlensnake Transfer Site" sign, pull off to the right on a steep but short 2-track dirt road and park anywhere near the edge of the cliff – the cave is directly below. Approach by following a faint trail that descends broken basalt then turn left, you can't miss it.
