From the left of the trunk and the eye, move up over a small overhang on small incut holds, protect with thin nuts (read:rps work best) and trend left slightly and commit to thin face moves to a rest and more thin nuts on your right in a small flare. Move straight up on moderate ground following horizontal cracks past a final well protected overlap to the top and mixed gear and bolt anchor...nice job!!!!

[Admin's NOTE: This climb may be "Elephantitis 5.9R" (FA 1980 T. Swain & Mike Cody) as listed in Webster. Webster states the climb is "to the right of the trunk", but I wonder if this is a "typo" because he clearly has the climbs listed right-to-left (from the access trail) and Elephantitis, being the last climb listed, then would be the left-most climb, not the right-most, and hence left of "the Trunk" ]


small nuts and cams along with a normal rack to #2
