You climb up the sandy wall, your hands and feet are singed, even though the wall is in the shade. As you climb, you seem to notice the sand shifting, whether it's heat or dehydration you aren't sure.
You make it out of the hole, and examine your surroundings. In almost every direction you see nothing but sand on the horizon. In the distant north, however, you see a menacing looking mountain. Closer to you, you see several identical holes to yours. Also your feet are burning from the sand, yay.
