A collaborative workshop involving 54 local and international scientists took place in May 2014 at the University of the Witwatersrand, The Rising Star cave system lies in the Bloubank River valley, 2.2 km west of Sterkfontein cave.It comprises an area of 250 × 150 m of mapped passageways situated in the core of a gently west dipping (17°) open fold, and it is stratigraphically bound to a 15–20 m-thick, stromatolitic dolomite horizon in the lower parts of the Monte Christo Formation.

The Rising Star cave system (also known as Westminster or Empire cave) is located in the Malmani dolomites, in Bloubank River valley, about 800 meters (0.50 miles; 2,600 feet) southwest of Swartkrans, part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site in South Africa.
A portion of the cave, used by the excavation team en route to the Dinaledi Chamber, is called "Superman's Crawl" because most people can fit through only by holding one arm tightly against the body and extending the other above the head, in the manner of Superman in flight.
The Dragon's Back Chamber can currently be accessed in two ways, both involving steep climbs along narrow fractures and tight passages: Route 1, along an east-northeast trending passage that follows a fracture for a horizontal distance of ∼50 m past a narrow access point called the "Postbox;" and Route 2, along a more complicated set of broadly east-trending passages, via a network of southeast, east, and north trending fractures for ∼120 m, and through a narrow access point called "Superman's Crawl." Route 1 is the most direct and contains abundant sediment accumulations once the deeper part of the cave is accessed (i.e., ∼20 m into the cave).
Route 2 is the one undertaken during the 2013 Rising Star Expedition.
