The Dig is the left end of the Sunny Side cliffband. So-named for an archealogical excavation that took place here some years back, uncovering numerous prehistoric artifacts.
From the end of the Sunny Side approach, walk left (East) along the cliff base for 100 yds. Hint: you should not walk through any cactus to reach this cliff. You will be walking uphill along the cliff for a bit. Once the cliff base begins to descend, you have reached the Dig. The first route encountered is "The Dig"
