A small cave or large rock shelter with signs of human habitation.

Cave No. 2 is located on the west side of the rocky bluff and is now substantially smaller, although its entrance is much wider, being about 9 m wide. It is about 7 m deep and just over 2 m in height. At the rear where the ceiling meets the floor there are several tiny vois sugggesting further development but nothing else to indicate a connection through to Cave No. 1. Cleaner sandstone above the cave's entrance shows large fractures and collapse appears imminent.

Alternate Names: Hanging Rock Cave (2)
