(6) First Cave Rock Climbing
As you walk south around the long arm of the Grand Auditorium, known as Dragon Ridge, you will see a huge arch over a shallow cave set far back in the hillside. This is the First Cave. There are a good number of moderate gear and sport routes on the south-facing wall, including the superb Commissary Crack. The north-facing wall offers a number of intermediate trad classics as well. The Dragon Cave's fiercest and most-overhanging bolted problems are in the cave itself.
Between the Grand Auditorium and the Second Cave.
Rain & Shade
Routes inside the cave stay dry in the rain. They tend to be dank after several days of rain though. All other walls dry quickly.
The cave interior and South Claw are shaded by 10am. All other routes are in the sun until late afternoon.
