  <text class="text" id="15">After turning off the dirt road take the left fork for about 100m. Park at the flat area (room for about 3 cars).&lt;br/&gt;Walk along the track until you get to the boulder sitting on an outcrop above the road. Head down hill for about 30m here then turn left towards the obvious overhangs.</text>
  <text class="indentedHeader" id="16">Sandy cave is the first cave you pass. This cave is unusually sandy for Sand River but looks to clean up ok. Plenty of slopey roof problems and small iron rich bands.</text>
  <text class="text" id="17">Past the sandy cave is an expanse of the usual superb Sand River rock.</text>
