North Cave Rock constitutes the northern-most of two large formations that make up Cave Corridor [a 30+ foot wide corridor of rock between this rock and South Cave Rock]. Cave Corridor lies directly south of the large Ryan Mountain trailhead parking area. This formation is closest to the parking area, about 100 yards away.
Routes are found on all sides of the rock, with the south face lying in the corridor proper.
