Description

The upper caves area is comprised of the large limestone "cave" formation on the hillside above the pullout at ~1.5 miles.

The Caves see little traffic and contain a collection of 8 or so routes in the 5.9+ - 5.12- range. The routes tend to be sharp and occasionally contain some loose rock.

Getting There

Approach uphill on the well defined and popular (for CB) trail to the base of the crag. 25 mins.
