From the top of the Straight Outta Memphis pillar follow moderate face just a few feet right of Straight Outta Memphis to a shared anchor.


Elvis Wall is the orange and brown textured face below the Aid Boulder. Elvis Has Left the Building is the furthest right slab climb on the Elvis Wall. Direct to the right is "Left Book" as depicted in Southern Sierra Rock Climbing guide book.


3 bolts?
Anchor status?

In response to the questions in the pro section, the 3 bolts appear in good condition (visibly, they appear newer than the other bolts at Squarenail). Anchors also appear in great condition. Easy walk off from the anchors if you're so inclined. Either way a great route.

Note that if you have a 60m rope, your belayer will need to be up on the 10' or so high ledge (has bolted anchors) to be able to lower you back all the way to the ground. Should be no issue for a 70m rope.
