Description

Black Hole takes quite a bit of work to get to and even more work to get out of.

You can access this run towards the bottom of the Deadwood Backside drainage .

Hike up a modest pitch to the entrance of the run.

What makes Black Hole challenging is not necessarily its pitch but how insanely rocky it is.

There could be several sections in this run where brief mandatory straightlining is required.

This should really only be attempted during exceptionally good snow years.

The pitch also gets steeper and steeper as you get to the bottom of the run.

When you finish, you have a long journey up the Summit City Drainage to the Deadwood Peak base.
