Probably the best problem at Fireblack. Start just 2 feet left of the Elephant’s Ear. Side pull right and painful crimp left under the small roof. Right foot smears on nothing and left takes a little edge. Up right to a large pinch and gun for the big jug in the crack. Finish up the crack, avoiding a loose flake jammed in the crack. An SDS would be very difficult.

EDIT The painful crimp left flake has disappeared making this problem harder.


Pad or two.
