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.

The crown jewel of the Dry, this phenomenal and inspiring line was bolted and tenaciously projected by CP Little, and has repelled many attempts from some very strong climbers for over ten years. Begin on the left side of the Celebrity Cave in a small alcove, climb up and past a low crux before traversing to the right through big and dynamic moves to gain a massive hanging stalactite. Hope your thigh-master sessions have paid off, and exit the stalactite to another hard and technical boulder pro...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
