Make exposed moves off the elevated platform to reach the high 1st bolt. A mistake here could result in an awkward tumble off the terrace and down the slope. A stick clip would be prudent. Continue stemming and pulling features up the shallow groove past twelve more bolts on inclusions, cobbles, and occasional pockets.


The Alamo climbs out of the smallest cave from the platform ten feet above the base of the far right (north) side of the East Face of the Elephant's Head.
