The Tecolote Cave is like any other typical limestone cave except for the abundance of tufas, stalactites, tunnels, and other weird features. There are a few vertical climbs on the edges of the cave, but the most striking lines are the steep ones. Grades range from 5.10 to 5.14.
Follow the 4WD road past the Animas Wall until it drops down and rejoins the wash. From here continue for another 5 or 10 minutes and the cave will be obvious high up on the hillside to the right, somewhat obscured by trees. Just before coming directly below the cave, an obvious, well-traveled trail heads steeply up the hillside. All in all its probably 20-30 minutes from the Animas Wall. Expect direct sun even in the winter.
