This diminutive (by Rifle standards) cave actually comprises the first climbing area on the right once past the Hatchery land. The cave itself offers two super-steep 5.13's, while the jumbled-up walls further left offer routes in the 5.8-5.12 range in a nice, quiet venue away from the road and the crowds.
The Sno-Cone cave is just downriver and across the stream from the Arsenal, about a mile up from the Canyon mouth. Park on the right in the shady picnic area or just up the road at a large, rectangular pull-out on the right next to the stream.
