Gettin' the heel.


A great problem. Powerful crimp and technical sloper climbing to the right and around the corner of the Elephant's Trunk problem. Starting down low in a scoop with a sloping crimp rail move up and left towards the Elephant's Trunk. When the rail runs out to the last small right hand crimp you must toss left to a poor sloper with a ripple of texture. Next heel hook on the sloping rail with your right foot and pull your body in tight as you move up with your right hand to another sloper. Adjust your feet and slap and fight your way to the top. The trick is finding the right slopers with the right little divots in them.


Located on the Pachyderm boulder. The scoped wall to the right and around the corner of the Elephant's trunk.

Not exactly year round, snow collects on top out.

You got to brush it off the top 3 days before, then leave a bright red tarp covering the top of the boulder. Then next time your out bring a hair dryer and 6 dozen towels, a step ladder, and a wet suit! Then just send it! What do you mean not year round! Lol...?
