4 out of 5 stars cave? what cave?

Somebody tell me where the cave was, because I didn't see it.

Threw a heel hook in there. Very possibly the first successful heel hook I have thrown outside of the gym. Therefore, I classify this route as super-fun!

Then I had to grab the little tree to avoid falling into the big block to the right. Must re-do this one to get it right!

4 out of 5 stars Fun on The Cave

Setup on the G-Wall to climb The Cave with my son Jack. The start is super easy and fun. The cave is a little tricky and provided a good challenge. There are so many different features on this route that it makes it really interesting and fun.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Fun route with a balancy move in the middle that composes the crux. I fell once because I lost that balance.

Probably the longest trad route at the Quarries, topping at the higest point there. It's a nice lead, takes plenty of gear...For me the crux was going up the dihedral section and my right leg started elvis-ing while I was playing around with gear...I had to bail on a couple placements and run it out to a better stance.

the route I took actually combines sections of the H face routes "BLocks", "The Cave", and "Little Inch".
