The path up is about 3.5 kilometers and gains a few hundred meters in elevation. You might want to carry some water though there is a stream at about the midway point where you can get a drink, as well. I was warned that the trek up and back would take four hours, but Busi took off at a fast pace. Sweating, I managed to stay up with her, trying to slow her down with a barrage of inane questions. I was somewhat relieved when she finally took off her coat just before we reached the midpoint stream. As we crossed, Busi warned me, "Now the way becomes steep!" Up we went. The cave at Game Pass Shelter is like most caves in the area, not a real cave but actually a large overhang worn away in the sandstone rock layers. You have a great view to the south as you climb and around the south corner from the cave you can see the pass that gives the cave its name. Here the hunters waited and passed the time, always searching for the eland herds that transversed the slopes of the Low Berg.
