The Skull Cave
About The Skull Cave:
Discription: A large cave about 150 yards upstream from The Wasteland Looking at it one has a sence of being very small and that the climbing is going to be hard. Most of the routes dont climb the GIGANTIC roof at the very top of the wall becuse it is pretty featureless, although a few do, and the ones that dont more than make up for it anyways. Expect for most of it to be pretty upside down climbing with "Daydream Nation" being totally horizontal for quite a ways.
Approach: Park in a pullout 25 yards down stream. Walk along the road and take a right at the "No Parking" sign and follow the trail back up to the cave.
