Good starting climb for the wall. Crimps and edges.


Easiest looking left most route on the wall. You can tell at the top where everyone else's ropes have run and dug into the rock.


Anchors at top for TR. Use about a 5-8' extension to get your anchor over the edge. Check the bolts, one on the east end is somewhat shady.

2 stars? Man that's harsh. A lot of people choose to touch the anchor 'biner and lower off, avoiding the crux, which is a steep little wall left of the cave to a belly flop finish.

There are many choices of holds here to make the climb easy or a little harder, tending right or left off route to get the most fun out of this route...

We didn't use extensions, to make it easier for a 1st-timer to try rapping off... but the rope drag was so severe. after I toped out I extended it. one of the bolts wobbles. best to add some backup protection from one of the other anchors. feels like a 5.8 to me... the top-out is on rounded holds, a little overhangy, with some swing if you come off.
