The Sapper Cave is the quiet, forested zone just up canyon from the Project Wall and includes the Sapper Cave itself and outlying routes on the vertical walls to the right and left. It is a good place to get back from the road a bit, and offers fair to classic routes in the 5.11 to 5.13 range.
Park at the Project Wall and walk 50 yards up canyon on the road, taking a climber's trail on the right. This trail deposits you directly under the very short Handy Boy (12b/c), a four-bolt boulder problem on the chossy right side of the cave.
