Description [Suggest Change]

This route is located about 20 yards left (north) of the Baxter Crack and the Spread Flake.

The Right Elephant Crack climbs a short but steep head wall. Scramble up an easy but slick slab to the crack's start. Big moves off jams and face holds take you through the crack to the cliff top.

Protection [Suggest Change]

.5 - #1 Camalot

Route was first TR'd by one of the Gleason brothers back in late '60s or so. (Phil I think.)

First lead was by Paul Davidson and Kim Spence.
Probably in 1978, late one evening after classes.

We called it Red Asphalt for the ankle biter potential off the one arm cranks and the red color of the slab.

At the time, I thought it might be a 12a. Certainly the hardest crank moves around Flag at that point in time.

But it's all of what, 20 ft ? Apr 9, 2008
