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.

This is basically the route to the right of Mariscos Lambada with two variations to get to the big roof crack (I think the left is harder and on better rock). Neither are harder than 5.10 to get to the roof and there are also two sets of anchors there.Once you're standing on the ledge under the business, lean out to the crack (exciting). Flip around and get crankin on this fun, airy boulder problem. The anchors are just after turning the lip.To me, this feels like an easier and less...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
