This is the leftmost route of the four Cave Route climbs, and heads straight up the face of the cave to the top anchor.

Stick clipping the first bolt is probably a good idea, as the not so soft talus floor of The Cave probably isn't very nice to land in.

Head up using all your strength through pumpy overhanging reachy moves using large jugs and anything else that helps.

You will probably hate yourself for top roping any Cave Wall route, as it's overhung enough to make getting yourself back on the wall a pumpy 5.10 move.

Climbing gets easier as you head up, but not much!


4 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.


Furthest left route on the top of the Cave Wall in the Pit.

YAY, bouldering with a rope. Gets sun after 1 or 2 for a few hours, making the flat/slopey holds a little tougher to stick to. Sep 18, 2017

Awesome moves on this route. It would be classic if it was longer and the start wasn't so exclusive, but the movements are really cool right off the ground. Like it's sister route to the right, the start is very height dependent, but I'm sure there are a million different ways to wiggle through it. Plan on leading this route next visit. Dec 27, 2009
