Description 

Shady fun climbs that often get overlooked; a nice warmup spot for Velvet Elvis, Cactus Massacre, Universal City, etc. Now that Civilization Crags is in place, this will be the spot to push the grades a little after climbing a lot of soft, easy tens. These routes are well worth the time. Every route is fun and worth doing on a hot day. The bottom part of the cliff stays in the shade so even on hot days the belays are pretty cool.


Getting There 

Located up and left of Civilization Crags. From parking, head straight down and hang a right down staircase-ish worn trail past Circus Wall (big arch) into the wash. Take the left corridor (narrow) through a shoulder-width slot to an easy scramble as it opens up. Shortly past this, scramble up and left through slight brush to obtain a wide ledge and path that leads eastward. Easy going and using the photo reference in the guidebook will have you there quickly. Approach the wall on its left side, scrabling up and then down into the Hole.
