Description Suggest change

The Black Hole is on the hillside just north of town. Check out classics such as Helicopter and Cytogrinder. Also, any number of linkups can be made. For example, try linking up Tendonitis traverse with a problem up the black hole, or make your problem into a loop!

Getting There Suggest change

Park on the South side of Morrison Rd, in Morrison at the obvious pullouts. Head east down Morrison Rd. just past where guardrails begin on the north side. Now, head up the trail strait north and the black hole is at the top. It's big, it's black, and it's a hole.

Per Heath Glasgow: due to recent changes making all parking in the Town of Morrison paid parking, it's best to park at the Morrison Park and Ride across from the Rocket/Phillips 66 gas station. Walk past the gas station along the sidewalk, and then cross the office parking lot to the start of a trail at the west end of the lot. After passing under a small cliff, stay right at the fork to take the trail uphill. This trail takes you up to The Lobby.
