Snowy day. Good thing The Black Hole is overhangi...


This is the easiest problem in the Black Hole. Start in the center of the Hole on some huge jugs a few feet off the ground. Traverse right in huge pockets until you reach the obvious jug line going up and slightly to the right. Make a few moves to gain hand holds on a ledge. The final hold is a few feet higher and to the left. Down climb the acsent route. This is a popular warm up for any other climb in the area.


If you don't have this problem wired, definitely use a pad. A fall from the top can be very dangerous.

Mike and I used to do this route all the time down in morrison. Its a good inverted problem and its not too intimidating. Always a favorite when climbing at morrison. Lots of good memories, but bring your crash pad. Im sure youll see Mikey there staring at the rock and giggling like a little girl.

In John Sherman's Hueco Guide, he lists the standards for his V-system of grading boulder problems. He lists Breashear's Crack (this problem) as standard for V2.

Yes, this is V2...considering that V2 equates to 5.11b/c.

Try to avoid using the big slot out right to heel hook/rock onto. That move took my knee out for 2 months. (Other than that, loved it).
