I took an 18"X18" black slate tile and leaned it in there diagonally. Easy to climb, the part near the light will heat up well, and it's big enough to provide a nice thermal gradient. The area that would be shaded by it gets extra illumination from the parent's tank, and the floor is pretty much unobstructed, just paper towels, half-toilet-tube caves, and a plastic lid with water.
S/he was just sitting in the corner kind of stunned by how big things are outside the egg. So I played with the temp gun for a while and once there was a spot over a hundred I herded him/her up into that vicinity and then backed off. S/he had a little bit of trouble handling the slanted surface, but not all THAT much. Should be okay, I guess.
