Cave Wall and Laurel Canyon. A climber can be...


A large section of fractured marble that has a vertical gash which forms the entrance to a shallow cave, about one third of the way up the cliff.

The marble when solid provides excellent friction, however the rock in general is highly unstable, and not suitable for climbing.

Getting There 

From the start of the 4S86 (this road needs high clearance and preferably 4x4 vehicles) drive for approximately 3 miles. You will drive over a brown colored scree slope as the cliff comes into sight up on the left. Shortly after the scree it is possible to park up in a small pull out.

Hike directly up to the cliff aiming for the obvious cave.
