Description

On the left side of the cave, climb the horizontal fingertip rail, sloth style, to the pronounced
jug at the lip (5.11a)… nothing but air. Throw the heel, and get clipped. Getting established
on the headwall (crux) is a grunt. Holds return for the upper section (5.10), but they never
seem to be in your face? This roof is reminiscent of sandstone, rather than limestone;
classic features.
Note: Sometime late summer 2005, the section of roof delineated by the fingertip rail, and
jug, a sheet approximately 4.5ft x 10ft x 10in parted from the cave (see scar, and debris),
the victim of spontaneous rock fall. Alas, one of the most unique limestone routes around
has become talus food. Hangers were pulled for reuse.

Location

Farthest route upstream in the cave.
