Description

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.

Here are detailed directions to the cave kloeker.wordpress.com/2016/… We made some rock cairns and tried to tame the trail a bit, please help maintain the cairns, apparently mad cows like to knock them over. Jan 20, 2016
Thanks Drew psyched you had a good time. Lot's of people have put a lot of work into the place. Hopefully we can get the trail better marked in the future the cairns seem to get knocked down by the cows. Lalo told us you were there. Apr 2, 2015
I would like to thank Mark for posting the info the cave on mountain project. Really appreciate you sharing your cave with us, and all the effort you've put into it. Be sure your car is 4x4 or else you will be trapped in the valley when it rains. The cave and even some of the tree's below it stay completely dry in even the heaviest of downpours Out of this world climbing with some of the craziest moves I've ever done. Lalo is a super nice man who really wants to see more climbers come through the area, he will gladly show you where the cave is for a few pesos. We tried to leave cairns and cut some of the overgrowth on the trail well we visited but it would've been very hard to find the cave with only the directions above. Apr 1, 2015
Damn looks like we came down a month too soon... can't wait to check this place out Grungy!! Mar 26, 2013
