Paul on the cast ascent.

No overnight camping on PG&E property MORE INFO >>>


5.8 move down low. The rest is cruiser. There is a second pitch to this climb that will get you to the top of the cave. From these anchors you can set up a top rope to climb the harder routes to the right if so desired. To do the second pitch, when you get to the top of the first pitch you will arrive at a bench area which is at the base of Negativity Cave, move left to the leftmost set of bolts. Paul Brabham did the first ascent of this climb while wearing a cast on his arm, hence the name. (I have no idea why he was wearing the cast)


This route is on the slab below the Negativity Cave and is the leftmost route. Most popular approach for the routes in the cave.
