looking into the cave


Start in lower left side of cave, right hand on a sloper and left hand in a crack. Left hand to a pinch, hit the sloper and bump to the sloper sidepull. Go straight up.


In the cave below the tipping point

That bump move is huge! I couldn't reach the side-pull off the sloper, and I wish I had more pads to protect the pit. Fun moves otherwise.

Remo,I'm only 5'6", so I was totally stretched out for the bump. I just walked my right foot out super far. It feels cool to stick it! I'm interested to hear what you think for a grade

I did this again today and put up a lower start that adds 3 or 4 moves. Prob about V6 and really good. Check it out. Its starts as far left as you can go in the cave.
