Start with trivial scrambling into the wide base, pick a side, and joyfully wedge upward past hidden holds to a spinning exit through a very short handcrack.


Locate Elephantiasis, and look for a faint, cairned trail heading southeast toward the large, reddish formation. Follow around the base, and a large, low angle slab will lead you to a corner with this wide crack.


Sling a giant boulder for the anchor. The crack tends to hold the anchor position quite nicely. It could definitely go on big gear.
