The Second Elephant Buttress.<br>
<br>
The easiest approach to Tough Situation and Classic Finger Crack is by scrambling down from the gap between the First and Second Buttresses, and scrambling right (4th class) to a good ledge at the base of the routes.<br>
<br>
It's also possible to approach these routes via a 4th-class climb from the water pipe.<br>
<br>
Descend by rappelling 90' from the top of Pine Tree Route, or by descending a trail just left of the First Buttress.
