27 Rubble Sport
32 Centrifuge

The horizontal line which traverses almost half of The Cave. Start as for She Devil, pass Gorilla Grip and continue along the seam which leads to Bogus Machismo. A mediocre rest after the long traverse provides some recovery for the weird and very wide crux.

27 Gorilla Grip

Cave classic and always climbed on. Most people's first climb here. Start up the short slab and continue straight up to the chains over the lip of the cave. Most people jump off the top instead of clipping the chains to avoid destroying their rope.

Line to the left of Bogus. V10 boulder to the pigeon pod leads into the top of Bogus Machismo.

Unknown
29 Bogus Machismo

Great flowing moves make this New Zealand's endurance testpiece! Starts in the central, deepest part of the cave. Climb straight up the veer left at 4th bolt. The draining start gives way to big holds. Two cruxes are placed conveniently at the very end for when you are completely pumped.

FA: Peter Taw, 1994

Sport
31 Kaiser Soze

Start up Bogus but go right at the 4th bolt into the no hands rest. From here continue up and right to the lip of the cave. Was originally climbed by Alex Palman with glued holds at 29, and recently broke to become harder again.
