Description 

Between the buttress and the main pachyderm wall, an obvious slab area. This area, as all of the Pachyderm wall, bakes in the summer, and is a great place when it is cold on the inside. Dries out quickly.

Getting There 

The easiest way to approach is as for the approach for the main wall. At the top of the trail, before turning left in to the main wall area, there is a trail which heads right. Follow this for approx. 200', passing the chained tree (which accesses the top of "hole in the Wall) to the large double trunked Oak. Rap in from the oak , which takes some creative tree slinging. There are chains 15' below the Oak tree, (the top of Pachydermatology).
As an alternate, you can access this from the bottom, as for the Buttress and Pachyderm Wall. Need a long stick clip to clip the lone bolt to get to the start of the slab climbs, which all start on the small ledge 25' off the ground.
