Description

The Carnal Caves are a sheltered and peaceful oasis in an otherwise sharp and ragged landscape. It is home to some full value mixed lines of a very traddy nature. These routes have a distinct "granitic" feel to their movements, and offer adequate to great rock on somewhat unusual terrain. This spot is an awesome hang with a full patio staging area just below the caves, and a great mix of ever changing sun and shade on key routes. And there are enough modern pitches here to offer a full days climbing. A crag within a crag...

Routes are sorted climbers left to right as if you were standing down below the caves and looking up with Patriot Games, Turn It On, and the Secret Garden on the left, outside of the caves.

Getting There

The Carnal Caves are tucked up above and just east of the Sun King Tower.
