The Tecolote Cave is like any other typical limestone cave except for the abundance of tufas, stalactites, tunnels, and other weird features. There are a few vertical climbs on the edges of the cave, but the most striking lines are the steep ones. Grades range from 5.10 to 5.14.
Follow the 4WD road past the Animas Wall until it drops down and rejoins the wash. From here continue for another 5 or 10 minutes and the cave will be obvious high up on the hillside to the right, somewhat obscured by trees. Just before coming directly below the cave, an obvious, well-traveled trail heads steeply up the hillside. All in all itís probably 20-30 minutes from the Animas Wall. Expect direct sun even in the winter.

Start in the depths of the upper cave on the left wall. A few steep moves off the ground lead up to a tunnel-through section and some slick climbing up into the roof of the upper cave. Problematic to clean unless you back clean or have a follower. The route is kinda dirty and the actually climbing isnít that good, but the feature is pretty unique....[more] Browse More Classics in International
