The Glory Hole is the most underrated crag in Humboldt for the 5.11 climber. The climbing is absolutely incredible; the rock is uniquely special, the holds are awesome, the walls are very 3D/featured, and the routes are just as long as anything on the Vision's Wall. The difference being that beta can sometimes be trickier to decipher sometimes, which I think is great. Sometimes routes will feel a grade easier after you figure out the wacky sequences.

A note on the approach, if you find the trail, it should be no longer than 4 minutes from the car to the top of the crag. If you've hiked longer, you're lost. From the upper parking lot, look for a trail heading northeast from the final turn in the road (40' before where you parked). 150' down the trail, the trail forks. The obvious right turn takes you to the lower crags (Three Amigos, Tropics, etc). Go straight even though the trail is hard to see here. 50' later, a solid trail re-appears and switchbacks straight down the hill. Hike left or right around to the base of the crag. Jul 18, 2017
