A neat little problem to do in the area. Stand beneath the scoop feature to the right of Swordfish Trombone and jump up to a horizontal crack like feature. The holds you are jumping to are decent slopers. From here make a hard shouldery campus move out right to a decent edge and then with difficulty get you left foot on and move your hand up to a jug in the vertical crack above to slopers you jump to. Top out on good foot holds and good handholds.

There is also the "Trombone Traverse which is a good warm up. It start around the right side of the prow on jugs and traverses leftwards. You can mantel it pretty much anywhere or keep traversing into "Pupfish Souzaphone" at about a grade or so harder, due to the pump factor.


Uphill from the Savannah Boulder. Once in the Trombone Area walk towards Goldfish Trombone, and you can't miss this bottomless scoop feature.


A pad or two and possibly a spotter.
