Description [Suggest Change]

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.

The Dig features long, hard, and sustained, overhanging routes on pretty low-end rock. Most routes start out steep, and trend toward the vertical as one ascends. This is generally a hard-man's area, though the cliff does feature the best warm-up on the Sunny Side (The Dig).

From left to right, routes here are:
1. 2001, 5.12a
2. Something Profound, 5.12c
3. Gluttony, 5.12d
4. Down in a Hole, 5.13b
5. Up From Below, 5.13c
6. Envy, 5.13c
7. La Primera, 5.11d
8. The Dig, 5.11a

Getting There [Suggest Change]

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"
