Description 

This is the cave that is located near the back of the canyon. It is very shady as the canyon is narrow. Very rare to find others climbing here.


Getting There 

Follow the canyon back to where are large cave opens up to the left. Since I have never walked in from where the parking area is now, I would guess it will take you 25 - 30 minutes to get there.

Tangled up in Blue, in BLUE!

Tangled up in Blue 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ E5 6a  NV : Arrow Canyon : Swamp Cave
A killer route featuring a variety of interesting movement and cool holds. Some of the hardest climbing is right off the deck; move through three bolts of slippery, powerful climbing to a mini ledge rest. From here the climbing style changes character, using a mix of crimps, pockets and the rare jug. The climbing is technical and engaging on bullet stone. Quite solid for the grade. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Today I added mussy hooks to the anchors (which are metolious rap hangars) on the three 9+/10A's on the right side of the swamp cave wall. I also added them to the far left route (12a) on the bit of wall left of the swamp cave.

I love this crag...and it will be nice to be able to lower off the warm-ups!
