So we kept walking around, and documenting what we found. Five small caves. A roof cave at the bottom of the cliff, which may have been what the book referred to. The location description matches, at the bottom, and a few meters across roof cave. Then there was a boulder cave under a couple of boulders on top of the cliff. And three more smaller ones.
The boulder cave was the most interesting! Over 7 meters long, and quite cave like. Although in my haste to find the "real cave" I didn't actually go through the first part of the cave. Oh well. Have to return some day.
There are also high-res versions in JPG, PDF, or Apple Graphic.
