Description [Edit]

One of the best features at Fireblack, the ElephantÂ’s Ear is my favorite warm up. If you are tall enough, just reach up and grab the top of the Ear & pull. Those of us more elevationally challenged must work our way up the sides of the Ear and move the feet up. Finish left of the tree on a crimp and a hidden scoop. SDS adds a couple of moves but no difficulty.

Location [Edit]

This is on the right side of the boulder. You can't miss the Ear.

Protection [Edit]

A pad or two, since the landing has a nasty rock under it.
