A steeply-overhanging, soot-blackened cave with several steep 5.12 routes, with one 5.10 and one 5.11 on the wall to the west. (Another 5.12 on the wall to the west can be climbed at 5.11 by bypassing the crux to the left.)

Getting There

[Suggest Change]
Park at a pullout just past the Little Mill Campground exit. Across the road and down canyon a little you'll see a bit of a trail that bisects the brush and heads up the hill. Follow the obvious, up-and-left-angling trail past a fallen tree or two and then head over the top of an outcropping which is more or less directly across the road from the campground exit.

The cave is just around the outcropping.
