Description [Suggest Change]

Begin 15 feet left of "Agua Negro." Climb the low angle pocketed face past three bolts. Clip a 4th bolt and move up and left on good pockets, including a mono-digit, and dicey feet. After clipping the 5th bolt move right and pull through the bulge to large pockets and inclusions and two more bolts to the anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the right (east) wall of the Elephant's Head (aka Hyperion Slab), 15 feet left of the black water streak of "Agua Negro." Begin on the low angle slab, below the bulging buttress, just left of the prominent oak tree.

Protection [Suggest Change]

7 bolts and 2-ring Fixe anchors.

Did this today...Thought it was fun. I really liked the little mono pocket half way up. Feb 22, 2012

Led this today. The fifth bolt up spins 180 degrees, and I can see that it's jutting a bit from the rock--made me nervous. Enjoyed the climb though! Jun 10, 2013

I heard that 2 days after my post (June 12), a climber actually pulled the bolt straight out. Doesn't sound like anyone was hurt; the climber pulled it out purposely, but I guess no more leading that one until Ben does his magic with the drill :) Jun 22, 2013

Thank you so much, Ben, for replacing the 5th bolt!! You're the best!!!!! We'll be out climbing tomorrow morning if you and Pam happen to be there :)
We noticed several new routes on the far right side of the Acme Top Rope Wall. There are three nice ones there, and I wondered if anyone had any information about names and ratings. We've been enjoying them, whoever put them up. Thanks again! Aug 2, 2013

Thanks, Ben! We've met you and Sophie a few times. My wife and I and Django (border collie mix) love your routes. I think we've only met Pam once. Looking forward to trying some of the new ones. Dec 7, 2013
