More of a land mark than a route, this is the cave just below the first pitch of The Naked Edge and just up and right from the top of Touch 'N' Go. This is the most common approach to the Edge, it leads to the rappel route down T2, and allows access to the Upper Ridge. From the anchor atop Touch 'N' Go 4th class for 100' to the base of the cave. Climb up and right through the large roof, awkward 5.8 to a good crack that leads to the bolts after 15 more feet.

A #4 Friend is not necessary. Not even sure where one would place it. I placed a #0.5 Camalot. Then a good green or purple C3 (blue or black Alien) and a small nut, then back cleaned the 0.5. Then pulled the roof.
