The Cave Boulder V 4, 5 & 6 

The cave boulder actually consists of three or more lines all starting from the same subterranean Hueco.

Start on your side under the boulder with a very cool knee-bar, thug your way up on steep jugs, over the bulge and top out with slopers and thin edges.

Go left for V5 up the middle for V4 and to the right for a slightly harrowing V6, all are full value!


upon crossing the lil creek walking in, go right and up the hill. You'll see the boulder hidden behind another.


A couple pads and spotters.

The most obvious route seems to be a v4, climbing from the huecos up and right through good holds and topping out on bad slopers or sharp edges. Not sure which holds one would use for the v5 variation.

The v6(+?) variation that heads right is sharp and hard.
