This open cave is mostly shady all day with beautiful vertical and overhanging tufa climbing. With about 25 routes, several with extensions, there's plenty to do. Most routes are 5.12 (7a+) and up and the extensions are mostly in the 5.13's (8a) with a few 5.14s, but don't let that stop you if you're climbing 5.11's (upper 6's)! The ones that are there can keep you entertained for a day if your partner is climbing harder, and are well worth doing.
The 2008 guide is quite misleading - getting off on the wrong foot can double the approach time.

The first section contains the crux as evident by copious chalk all around. Staying left seemed correct. From here go through a few easy sections with large runouts and potential for bad falls, reaching the anchors to realize you have enough draws left over to do the extension pitch....[more] Browse More Classics in International
