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!


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


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