The area boasts some endangered fauna and flora and care must be taken to not damage any of the flora that inhabit Mt Franklin. Removal of plants could result in climbing restrictions.
It is located on the left side of the west face and is reached by following the tourist trail around the base of the dome. When the trail turns left, you will see the blank slabby feature resembling an elephant.

As for Hannibal to the third bolt, then left and up the crack on the side of the elephant's trunk and head.
An excellent and sustained climb straight up the middle of the trunk. Protected with six bolts (hangers needed), wired and cams.

This is a variation to the finish of Hannibal. It has a longer first pitch and a great position up the side of the 'trunk'.
