The Celebrity Cave is home to two of the hardest climbs in Southern Arizona: Suzanne Somers and Lee Majors. Purported to be in the mid-14 range neither has seen a first ascent and that is not due to lack of effort. In addition to these two test pieces Renaissance Man and Butterfly Hiccup are of the utmost quality.

The Celebrity Cave receives full sun nearly all day in the winter. In the spring and fall it goes into the shade in the late morning.

Getting There 

The Celebrity Cave is approached via the sole access trail that makes a single large switchback. Follow the trail to where it meets the wall at the Spine Cave. Continue east along the wall gaining elevation. Use the metal guideline where the trail narrows at the Bee Cave. You have arrived when you reach a 25ft deep cave with fixed quick-draws.
