Description

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

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"
