This cave comes just before you hit the crowds of Orange Oswald. It is impressive, and huge, but unfortunately tends to seep, and the only lines that have been sent yet are along its flanks. Still, it is a great place to hang during the rain. The classic line here is Narcissus, located on the far left of the cave, which is many a gym rat's first 5.12a. The far right side houses Deep Throat (13c) and Suicide Blonde (13b), both of which are quality lines of the grade, and great complements to the 13s of the Coliseum. Probably the first line that most people notice here is the impressively tiered roof crack that splits the deepest, steepest part of the cave. This line, which is unfortunately nearly always wet, would undoubtedly be a hard 5.14 if it ever goes free. Some quality 5.11s also flank either side of the cave as its walls become more vertical.
