Description

The Winchester Cave area is marked by a small cave with several nice lines coming out of it. On the left is a beautiful, vertical wall with at least one terrific route. Numbering, again, follows Hassan Saab's guide with Ricochet on the left as #1.

Getting There

Park at the picnic area downstream from the Ruckman Cave. Cross the stream and continue hiking downstream to the second, short access trail to the cliff base. There is a bit of talus below the main wall, a cave, and a short slope on the left where the routes begin.
