The Area

The Cave Area boasts many of Woodson's classics, such as Stairway to Heaven, Bat Flake and the namesake route, The Cave. It is a very popular area of which a large portion of the routes are easily visible/accessible from the road.

Getting There

This area is quite aways up the road, on the forth switchback past the Poison Oak Boulder Area. One will be heading up and south before this area can be seen on the left. The route The Cave is perennially chalked with lots of features.
