BETA PHOTO: See the Ear?


One of the best features at Fireblack, the ElephantÂ’s Ear is my favorite warm up. If you are tall enough, just reach up and grab the top of the Ear & pull. Those of us more elevationally challenged must work our way up the sides of the Ear and move the feet up. Finish left of the tree on a crimp and a hidden scoop. SDS adds a couple of moves but no difficulty.


Right side of the boulder. Can't miss the Ear.


Pad or two since the landing has a nasty rock under it.
