COMFORT

The sleeping areas are level and smooth, but a bit dusty.


4
WATER

A small, reliable stream runs below the cave, and this can be reached quite easily.


2
POOLS

In summer there are some shallow pools further up the gorge which are usually quite safe for small children to get to.


3
SHELTER

Tucked behind some trees in a little gorge, Barker's Chalet offers excellent shelter from the elements.  However, because of its proximity to the Cathedral Peak hotel, one can expect very little privacy at the cave, and you should not leave any equipment unsupervised.

OUTLOOK

The cave is nicely situated in a forested gorge which adds considerable appeal to it, but there is no view beyond this.
