Directions:  Park at the Arethusla Falls parking lot. Walk North on the Railroad Tracks until you come to the trestle. Follow a trail to the left just before the trestle trending right and all the way to the back of the "Amphitheatre." Chia is the large climb all the way at the back, on the right. The Cave Route is about 60' right of Chia.

Gear: Standard ice rack.
Descent: Rap from anchor or slings on the trees or traverse left and walk down by Chia.
