A Grotto is defined as "a cave or cavern." That is exactly what this area is.
The Ort Wall is located in the Grotto Area, next to The Grotto, Cave Routes, and The Welcome Wall. From the parking lot, go through the second white gate and continue west bound along the road (not heading towards Table Mountain yet. About 1/4 - 1/2 mile you'll see the trail split left. Go left. The trail now heads up switchbacks towards Table Mountain. WATCH OUT FOR POISON OAK. IT IS EVERYWHERE. The trail will come to a talus which you can cross. You can enter the Grotto Area from either the West or East. The West enterence has a Class 3 scramble down into the hole. If you hike around on the talus you'll enter from the east with a nice decent down into The Grotto.
