BETA PHOTO: Deadwood Cave with the sun lighting up the Middle ...


Start on a pinch in the center of the cave about eye level, pull on and do some techy/burly moves through slopy crimps and pinches to the right, then make a big sideways dyno to the Manhandled crack and use it to top out. Keep those feet high too. Those lower blocks are seperate rocks


If looking at Manhandled cave it's the obvious line that starts in the center of the cave and moves right.


R/X without many pads and 2-3+ good spotters. This is tall and crux move is over very large rock pointing right into you

How is a 16' problem rated X? It would be hard to die from 16'.

ya the landing is pretty much a guarantee injury at the top. thats not including that the crux move involves you dynoing back towards another gnarly rock angling at of an awful sloper so ya i still give it X rated fall zone

R/X with no pads or spotters, reasonable with (need about 6+ pads and 2-3 good spots) This thing has some cool looking moves! Congratulations, Matt.

Super impressive line, and a great addition. Nice work, Matt.

And yeah, this is a seriously dangerous line to attempt without a well-coordinated team effort.
