DescriptionAh, the Brown Cave ... what can you say about the Brown Cave? It's easy to find -- even though it's a couple hundred yards up the hillside, it's easy to spot from the road. Beware, though: the cave is MUCH bigger and MUCH further away than it looks from the road. Chimney up the back of the cave past a large chockstone and continue up a wide crack to the summit. Taller folks will have a definite advantage in the initial chimney
The climb is pretty damn near unprotectable which, coupled with the extremely crumbly rock, can make this a slightly nervous experience. Still, it's an entertaining little adventure in a nice setting.
Descent is pretty straight forward -- keep heading back and the hillside will pretty much come up to meet you. Then it's a long boulder hop back to the road.
