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.

This is a killer route with steep moves from tufa to tufa to a final big move at the top before the anchor. Good use of drop knees, kneebars and heel hooks will make this route pretty reasonable. If you don't use these techniques then your in for a massive pump and probably some air time....[more] Browse More Classics in International
