THEN...take a bearing and bushwack to find the cave that Pike and his men sought refuge in on their first exploration of the area.

Pointing to where the cave is from below.
Thunder began, so we took our bearing and got off the summit via a little class 3 scrambling. Then, the ridge tamed, and we followed that to near the cave. We were very close and zig zagged around the area....but we missed the cave. Later, I looked at my gps track of our route and we were stinkin' close! But the weather was getting really sketchy, so we had to get down. Next time, we will find the cave!
