Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


The Black Hole shares the first pitch with the Sea of Holes but was climbed first. It is this first pitch that has the large, man-sized hueco from which this route's name is derived.

Pitch 1: Make a few chimney moves to obtain the corner above it and follow this corner system past a thin crack to the two bolt anchor. (5.9, 100 feet)

Pitch 2: Continue straight up through the obvious weakness in the roof. (5.10, 50 feet)


This route is located in the second corner to the left of Topless Twins on the left side of Brass Wall.


Gear up to a single #4 Camalot
