Description 

Squat start on a rather crappy sloper/crimp with your feet on a huge foot hold. Work your way up the slopers find little delicate feet and a good sloper/crimp get a decent foot and reach for the huge jug for the end get both hands on the jug and get a foot up on the top of the boulder and rock over and up to the top

A little foot has broken off so it might make it a little harder to get your feet along with you without campusing across to get the good feet


Location 

Find The Whip nice tall highball crack. Walk around to the left of the crack and turn right to find Elephant Back.


Protection 

Pads multiple and spotters

This thing has a really bad landing so please be careful when climbing it. This is friction dependent but a lot of fun.

P.S. sorry for breaking the foot off...

Heelhooks and smears work just as well.

I need to learn how to mantle :) I bonked off from the top. (thank you spotters!) I went back to my sport climbing roots and sent it next go using a knee bar at the top.
