Steep jugs and powerful moves on many of the routes favor good technique, endurance, and the power to pull the lip. Kamikaze Cave offers eight steep routes and linkups ranging from 5.12b - 5.14a/b, and an open project.

The cave offers mixed shade in the morning and complete in the afternoon. Camping and campfires are NOT permitted at Kamikaze Cave or Echo Cliffs.
