Tough for a 5.8+, especially if you are lead climbing it. Very tall cave after the first bit of wall that requires a no hold mantle. If you're short (like me) this cave is hard to get past. After that the holds aren't great and man are they pointy.

We top-roped this one after moving the rope over from The Dude Abides route. Fun to stand up on the ledge at the top and surprise the hikers along the trail.
