Cro-Magnon Cave can be found just south of the Three Roofs Wall. It boosts several moderate trad lines that will make an enjoyable visit for the traditional leader. Be cautious of loose rock as this area does not see much traffic. The Cave proper has a stemming problem with a exit at it's top-out.

Getting There 

Standard Wilton Approach. It is shorter distance to ascend the Khumbu Dirt Fall and walk the cliff base toward the North.

As of 12/30/16 a new two bolt anchor with quick links has been installed between the routes YO-YO and Maplewood Crack. This anchor with mild work can be accessed and used to rap from all of the lines on the wall left of the cave.
