Enjoying the large-hands section of Cave Route Lef...

Description 

This route ascends a tasty hand-crack (big hands) out the left side of the big cave. Begin by gaining a large bouldery protrusion and get into an excellent section of wide hands to surmount the roof. After the roof the grade eases significantly. Great protection abounds as you climb a left-trending crack above. It is possible to toprope the bottom section of this route from an anchor set at the terminus of Cave Route Center.


Location 

Climbs out the left side of the big cave.


Protection 

1 set cams to #3 Camalot, 1 set stoppers.
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top, was installed to prevent further damage to trees.
