Oliphant

Description 

Fun problem, with a stellar view from high up the canyon. Climb through the elephant truck tufa to a little bit of a dirty top out.

Watch what you grab towards the last 5 feet, the hueco's are quite thin, and it looks like some breakage has happened recently. It would suck for a hold to blow while you're up there!

Location 

Can be seen from the road... if you have binoculars.
Walk up through the Cabin Fever(aka Death Scream, aka The Perimeter) area, zig-zagging up the hill until you reach the light colored cliffs at the top.
Start matched on the undercling and go straight up from there

Protection 

A few pads and a good spotter is great. The problem is pretty easy, but the landing is not ideal
