Red Baron

After a 2 hour hike of mostly scrambling, access to this cleft is gained by a short rappel off a 200' cliff.


The entry was excavated by the two original explorers in 1972 and is quite tight.


The entry passage is gated to protect the cave's formations.

Helectites are plentiful!

What a beautiful cave!

is Red Baron cave located in Rock Canyon in Provo? I have been trying to find a cave in Rock Canyon and I thought that the name of it was Red Baron. Do you have any info about Rock Canyon caves?
