Directly north of the Blob in the center of the Outback lies the Iron Door Cave, a relic from the past and a local curiosity about which not much is really known. Rumors about it's usage include that of a man keeping his son inside...but who really knows?

This technical slab problem (aka Caveman) climbs the south face of the boulder with the Iron Door Cave, and faces directly towards the Tidal Wave Boulder. Sloping holds, small crimps and delicate footwork are required to succeed on this gritty problem. One star out of five due to the rock quality.

Fun problem. Word is apparently out on social media about the cave though. I was out there last weekend and there was a conga line of people stretching from Hidden Valley CG to the cave. Felt like the crowds at Lower Yosemite Falls. Mar 13, 2015

The rock quality has cleaned up nicely and all the holds are solid (well, maybe the thin flake for the right at the start is a little crunchy).

Movement is nice all the way up. Feb 10, 2013
