Description

You'll have to drive and hike a mile and a half up a mountain fo this one. Trailhead access is off of a small dirt road called Goat Farm rd. with a small pull-off just past a horse pasture and a couple of houses. There is a small trailhead sign and orange arrows pointing up the mountain.

Getting There

From the Goat Farm rd. trailhead, follow the trail up the hill for about half a mile, and then there will be a somewhat-hidden climber/caver's trail to the right when the trail starts to level out a little bit. If you cannot find the trail, continue on the well worn one around the ridge, and when you get to an intersection with a signpost go right and uphill. You want to get onto the other side of the ridge and into a steep valley with cliffs on both sides. In the valley, there is somewhat of a scree field, navigating it with pads is tricky. If you come in from the caver's trail you'll be coming up from the bottom of the steep valley and the bouldering area will be the first large chunks of rocks next to cliffs that you see, if coming in from the top of the valley the long way it will take you a little while to get down to where the cave and problems are. You'll know it when you see it.
