Description

The Grotto is a secluded area that is seldom visited by climbers. The rock faces north and is in the shade most of the year. The rock is a bit lichen covered but is relatively solid. Climbing on The Grotto is similar to the climbing at Garden Wall. There are two 5.6 climbs on The Grotto. After leading, "Grotto" (5.6 PG), you can easily access the base of "Sunnyside" (5.9) and make your way to the summit blocks. If you've been everywhere else, you might want to check out The Grotto. Note - lead and anchor bolts replaced in 2010.

Getting There

To get to The Grotto, take the P-Wall access trail and turn right when you bump into P-Wall. Scramble up through the notch between P-Wall and the P-Wall Pinnacle and continue up and right (past "Dark Side") till you finally reach the base of The Grotto. You will pass two chimney/gullys on your left.
