Routes in Sun Cave

Forever Man S 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b

Description

This cave sits on the north side of the river and is very obvious from the road/parking as a long, left leaning slash in the wall. The cave houses several routes, and offers warmer temps than the shady side of the VRG (in fact, even though the climbing in the cave never sees the sun, the cave tends to trap warm air which can make for steamy conditions). The rock is far lower quality than the more popular walls at the VRG, but at least the routes are steep.

Getting There

The Tyrolean across the river is no longer there, but in low water conditions one can rock hop and wade. Park as normal and scramble down by the overpass. Cross the water by a huge boulder on the near bank. From here scramble up left and then directly up to the obvious cave - once across the river the approach is no more than 10 minutes.
