BETA PHOTO: The entrance to the cave; you cannot miss it even ...

Description 

Protection from the elements in the form of excellent overhangy goodness. The rock is very forgiving on the hands.

On rainy and snowy days this area gets crowded...

There are a handful of lines in this area; none of which I know the names or ratings. The far left (when facing the cave) seems to be the easiest, while the center-right and farthest right appear to be the most difficult; though nothing above v3.

I visited this area during a wet spell and everyone who was climbing said the lines ended at the mouth of the cave entrance. If they do in fact head up the vertical wall, I am unaware of it.

Getting There 

Continue on the path beyond Heel Hook Rock and it will eventually dead-end at the cave; you can't miss it.

Rock Climbing Photo: moving out of the crux move.

center-right line V3 6A  WA : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : The Cave
the crux is a drilled out 3 finger pocket (single knuckle deep) hold; well moving out of that is the crux :). I assume that this was drilled out as it is perfectly round and fits 3 fingers perfectly...The line is great....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
