Description

This area gets it's name from a sort of slot cave in the middle of the wall. It is probably the biggest section of unbroken, climbable wall, and features a pretty full collection of routes. Most of the routes are vertical to overhanging and feature big pockets that will pump you silly. The area is popular, but usually easy to work in and around other climber groups. Lots of fun climbing here!

Getting There

Pogues Cave is on the left end of the main Enchanted Tower area, opposite the Tower. Approach is easy up the hill from the road via trail. Approximately five steep minutes.
