Climb the gully below the Black Hole,
Fun, walk & scramble off to the right.


Directly across big parking area from Thug wall & Rocky Top crag on the North side of the Gunga Din slot


Standard rack, gear anchor

I used a .75 and #3 camalot and a yellow alien toward the end because I could and had taken a rack. It's about 10 or 15 feet of 5th class although some might disagree that it is 4th class. I had a hard time not free soloing it as Tony B did but my belayer would not have been happy with me. The rock quality is quite excellent but it is more scrambling than climbing. I thought maybe 5.2 for a move or two and my belayer said 5.5. A #1 and #2 camalot made a nice gear anchor but you could just belay using body position. Nov 28, 2017

Agree with KC below, this "route" is 5.2 at best. This easy scramble provides much higher quality rock than the objective above. 4 days ago

4th class going out right up the ramp. No gear needed for the belay at the base of Black Hole. It is a big flat area. 4 days ago
