Always shaded all the time, and a cool environment, but there is only one route, so climb here at the hottest point on a hot day! A long 5.10- is on the inside of the cave. While the climbing might only be one star or two (depending on if the top is wet or not), the overall experience is 3 stars. Once inside if you look tot he right you are looking at the inside of the wall that forms CrazyHorse Buttress. A rock banged out on the ourside of Crazyhorse can be heard clearly inside the cave, as if climbing inside a drumskin.
Hike up and left from Crazyhorse wall as for the Aircon Wall, but after the wide switchback when the trail hits the wall again, turn right and go downhill 10 meters instead up uphill to Aircon. A small entrance is apparent, but what is not apparent is that after a 15 meter scramble you will end up in quite a large cave, open from the top down. Scamper and slither down this passage into the large room below. A headlamp is needed to climb, if not for hte approach. 5 minutes in all.

The climb ascends a bolted line to the top, but would be very hard to follow without a headlamp on lead. Be mindful of a wet area to the left about 3/4 of the way up and stay right there (probable crux, 10a) all the way to the anchors. Bang on the "drum" 5 feet up the wall to the left of the first bolt and then head on up....[more] Browse More Classics in International
