This can be found directly north 100 yards from the Super Slab boulder. The "caves" are found directly below The Clamshell.

One of the odder routes in its grade - worth doing once for that reason. I liked the step-across (easier than Pine Tree Step Across).

That is a super commiting move up there, with gear behind you in the roof, scary.
