  the cavern entrance w/ vertical ladder
by VathekNet

Descending/Ascending the 50' ladder in the Terciopelo cavern. 6" wide with wire sides. Great physical challenge, but make sure you are up to the task. Some people almost didn't make it out due to the ladder out.

The interior of the cavern is not the best. The 2 hour hike each way was great, but not if you are only going for the caves.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
