Description 

The Souls cave is compact, short, and steep, and is home to the steepest rock at the Hood. The easiest route is 5.13c. Every technique in the book is required for success: knee bars, toe hooks, hand jams, etc. Small fingers help too. Seepage can be a problem in the early spring.

Getting There 

The Souls Cave is situated at the right hand side of the Main Face, three-quarters of the way along the cliff towards the bigger Compton Cave.
