Carefully climb the crumbly slab and nimbly traverse around the large detached block to reach the 1st bolt. Above the block the rock improves considerably. Move left and follow the wonderful pockets, inclusions, and features through the black patina-like varnish. Near the top trend left to the anchors. Great moves on awesome features above the 1st bolt.


Right side of the Elephant Head, left of the gully and the Elephant's Ear (pinnacle)


10 bolts and an anchor consisting of a Fixe ring and a chain.
Big fun and definitely worth doing.
