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.

Today I added mussy hooks to the anchors (which are metolious rap hangars) on the three 9+/10A's on the right side of the swamp cave wall. I also added them to the far left route (12a) on the bit of wall left of the swamp cave.

I love this crag...and it will be nice to be able to lower off the warm-ups! Jan 12, 2012

Can anyone tell me how long it takes to walk here from the parking? Also, would it be too cold to climb here over Thanksgiving? Thanks! Aug 16, 2017
