BETA PHOTO: The entrance to the cave; you cannot miss it even ...

Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>


Protection from the elements in the form of excellent overhangy goodness. The rock is very forgiving on the hands.

On rainy and snowy days this area gets crowded...

There are a handful of lines in this area; none of which I know the names or ratings. The far left (when facing the cave) seems to be the easiest, while the center-right and farthest right appear to be the most difficult; though nothing above v3.

I visited this area during a wet spell and everyone who was climbing said the lines ended at the mouth of the cave entrance. If they do in fact head up the vertical wall, I am unaware of it.

Getting There 

Continue on the path beyond Heel Hook Rock and it will eventually dead-end at the cave; you can't miss it.

Rock Climbing Photo: moving out of the crux move.

center-right line V8-9 7B+  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : The Cave
the crux is a drilled out 3 finger pocket (single knuckle deep) hold; well moving out of that is the crux :). I assume that this was drilled out as it is perfectly round and fits 3 fingers perfectly...The line is great....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
