Description 

The upper caves area is comprised of the large limestone "cave" formation on the hillside above the pullout at ~1.5 miles.

The Caves see little traffic and contain a collection of 8 or so routes in the 5.9+ - 5.12- range. The routes tend to be sharp and occasionally contain some loose rock.
