Met Ross early for hike up to The Cave... opted for some route finding up and to the Slot first. Wow... it turned out to be exceptional, and too challenging for us to climb on our own. I'll come back with Kim to get up into the next level, or I'll carry in a climbing pole.

The Cave turns out to be nice, but not a feature we will need to protect. It is hard enough to get up and in to discourage most folks... and the drama is all out in the entry and first 100 feet. It deadends soon after on the main branch... and climbing up to the side branch 40-60 feet to the back of the upper shelf... all crawling. Lots of crystal structure, but no huge drama.

It is a great intermediate level hike destination.

Looks like Cabrito Canyon may make a nice exit loop... if some issues can be resolved on the route along the Cliff bases.

Need to haul out a ton of trash... someone was living up in under one of the cliff overhangs for awhile.

A good day, and finished just as the floods begin!
