East facing morning sun.

Getting There

Half way up the hill to El Salto take the left turn down the crazy dirt road. This is the very small town of Puerto Genovevo. The sign says Potrero Redondo. Drive down this bumpy road for 30 minutes. Cars or trucks with clearance are recommended though I often see the smallest of compact cars making the drive, but I wouldn't recommend it. Subarus seem to do fine but use your judgement. If it is about to rain or has just rained I don't recommend driving any vehicle down the steep road. When you reach where the rivers come together (las adjuntas) park. The first parking area/ kitchen is Don Lalo's. You can camp with him and use his kitchen and give him a tip when you leave.

The approach from Lalo's. is as follows. Hike across the river take the first left after 1 minute up the steep road which leads to the campground picnic area. Wander up and right through this field passing on the right side of a big chossy boulder that is in the middle of the field. Eventually near the upper right part of the field you we see our trail that leads right to the cave and is easy to follow. There is a large cairn at the start of this trail that usually is knocked down by the cows. It goes up to the ridge along the ridge and drops down to the cave. 30 minutes.
