Description

This is a fun collection of steep sport routes and linkups, and has the shortest approach of the Kaymoor crags.  Although it is very sheltered from rainfall, for some reason The Hole tends to seep and sweat more than the Cirque or the Coliseum.

Note: the Hole (along with the Cirque) is one of the few areas within the New River Gorge in which perma/project draws are accepted, even though they are still technically not legal anywhere within park boundaries. Take care in inspecting fixed gear.
