Description 

The Elephant Boulder is a 13 foot high, gray, granite beauty. The real attractions are the hard left and right aretes, but it also has a few easier problems, too. This boulder is great in the summer as it gets very little sun.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot at Lynn Woods, take the wide dirt road (Ox Pasture Road) around the right side of the pond. Walk for about 15 minutes (passing a few boulders on your right) until the pond bends around a corner and out of sight. You will see a white boulder on the shore. Continue straight ahead on the wide dirt road for 12-15 minutes. Immediately after passing over a small stream/brook with a plasic, green culvert tube, break left into the woods on a game trail and go uphill 150 feet to the Elephant Boulder. Total approach is about 30 minutes from the car.

Hold the barndoor and slap your left hand to a sloper that faces the wrong way. Continue up the left arete on some marginal holds and feet, eventually slapping your right hand out to the obvious sidepull on the face.
