Description

This is the cave that is located near the back of the canyon. It is very shady as the canyon is narrow. Very rare to find others climbing here.

Getting There

Follow the canyon back to where are large cave opens up to the left. Since I have never walked in from where the parking area is now, I would guess it will take you 25 - 30 minutes to get there.
