Description Suggest change

The Cave Wall can be accessed via the Cave Trail, which starts on the West side of the road near the large parking lots. These large parking lots are the next lots after the first lot for access to the Climber's Trail. You can actually get into the cave from a chimney at the top of the wall, but it's usually a major drainage for water.

Getting There Suggest change

This wall is located on the West Rim, just South of Allied and Neanderthal Wall. Either hike South from there (or Grocery Store Wall) from the top of the cliff, or park in the second lot on the left (from the Northern park entrance) and take the trail West to the cliffs.
