DALI'S HOLE


Dali's Hole became synonymous with easy sport climbing as soon as it was developed, quickly acquiring the nickname 'Costa del Dali'. Sadly the area became a victim of its own success and the crowds turned this into an access flashpoint which has ended with many routes being de-bolted. We have included all the routes here for the record but many are unclimbable now.
Despite this, there are still some good routes left of the main wall to climb: John Verybiglongwords is a great deep water solo in the right conditions; Zambesi and Holy, Holy Holy offer some great trad climbing; Launching Pad is a more old-school run-out slab and Minder is a superb sport route on Hidden Wall.
