Bolted all the way to the top, but a great splitter for the first half that will take cams, stopper, nuts. Medium to large.

Description:

This route is easy to find, furthest to the left, large obvious cave at base, hence the name. Easy first pitch, 5.7, slabby, great face climbing or crack climbing. Obvious two bolt anchor, then second pitch the crack immediately dissappears and begins a relentless 10a/b fingertip lieback almost to the top, with a slabby dirty topout.

Descent Options:

Two station rap down, or hike out from the top to main sport areas.

5 out of 5 stars Great lieback

Slab start, to a lieback crack to lieback hand holds that go all the way to the top. The feet are very hard to find and sometimes you're just smearing on the friction of the limestone. Look for fossils on your way up.

5 out of 5 stars I say solid 10b on that second pitch...

Great lead. Felt kinda run out after the 4th bolt. It was great fun, I hope to lead it clean soon...
