GROTTOS IN MECCA AND THE SHEEP HOLE OASIS

This is a fun and different journey than most! In Mecca there is a cave system called the Grottos where you climb over, under and around various rock obstacles, sometime in total darkness, sometimes on your belly and sometimes through narrow confined spaces. Headlamps advised, pants advised as well as gloves and your camera.

This hike is very exposed to the sun in beginning and end so not for hot weather. The ridge walk after finishing the grotto overlooks multiple canyons and the Salton sea.

7-8 Miles with Elevation gain of 500 ft.
