Directly northwest of the Tidal Wave Boulder is this tan boulder more notable for it's namesake, the Iron Door Cave, than the boulder problem up it's south face. Walk around to the east side, go down the steps and enter through the door into the cave and let your mind go.

Getting There 

Approach from Hidden Valley CG by following a trail past the east face of The Blob, from the paved road near the vicintiy of Steve Canyon or even from the vicinity of Echo Cove.

Directly north of the Blob in the center of the Outback lies the Iron Door Cave, a relic from the past and a local curiosity about which not much is really known. Rumours about it's usage include that of a man keeping his son inside...but who really knows? This technical slab problem (aka Caveman) climbs the south face of the boulder with the Iron Door Cave, and faces directly towards the Tidal Wave Boulder. Sloping holds, small crimps and delicate footwork are required to succeed on this grit...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
