"Amarillo by Morning" ascends the steep wall 30 ft. left of "Endymion." To reach the base, traverse the low angle slab or scramble up between the low angle slab and the brush on the southwest side of the Elephant's Head to a sandy belay nook. Climb the low angle apron on knobs and inclusions. As the wall steepens a line of stellar, but spaced pockets appear along with cobbles and inclusions. Match hands in the pocket and throw for the deep pocket or pull the move statically. Pull through the bulge on awesome pockets and knobs. Continue up the lower angle slab and pockets to the anchor.
On the southwest face of the Elephant's Head (aka Hyperion Slab). 30 ft. left (west) of Endymion. Wander up the lower angle slab on the southwest side of Hyperion Slab to a sandy belay, where bushes and snags block further progress.
