Description:

Location is about 75 yards north of Jim Dandy, up a hill and around a corner, First pitch has 3 bolts and goes under a ledge to the right, hence the name Cave route. Second pitch has 1 bolt and is run out but easy to climb. This will top out at the Lunch ledge where you can continue up one more pitch to the Lightning Ledge, or choose another route to take to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Great climb

First multipitch. Easy but fun when combined with block route to the top out at the peak trail. Note: third bolt of first pitch chopped.
We surprised the tourist hikers at the top. We asked them how they got to the top without a rope! They replied that they took the trail. My partner and I had a fake gripe about a trail and having done all that work climbing. I think they believed it!

4 out of 5 stars climbing school

I follwed as a third on the 1st pitch of this one while a buddy of mine completed his first sport lead. Then I led the second pitch clean. Great gear placements! I always forget that there is a really great #3 Cam placement on the right as soon as you bump up and around the corner after the 1st pitch belay station.
