Small cave with a couple of excellent problems. This small area is worth taking the time and effort to find. Powerful climbing on all the problems is followed by airy topouts.

Getting There 

From the Hobbit Hole Boulder head North East until possible to turn left and up and over some small outcrops. Head right towards a rocky gully. The Scorpion Roof cave lies up on your left.

Climbing Season
