Description 

The more neglected side of Elephant Rock, the north side climbing is still a blast. A bit steeper than its neighbor, this section of the formation has a good number of intermediate lines being traditional, sport, and mixed. Climbing on this side is primarily face, with horizontal and vertical cracks features throughout.

Most routes here have fixed anchors, and a 60 meter rope will suffice. If needed, or applicable, descend by walk-off and 3rd class scramble on the back, northwest corner of the formation.


Getting There 

Take Emery Canyon Road north until you reach the unmistakable Elephant Rock parking lot. Be careful not to block the gate when parking.

Beware of Nesting Egos 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c PG13  ID : City of Rocks : ... : Elephant Rock - North
This is an incredible mixed route to the right of The Pygmees got stoned. It has three widely spaced bolts but you will also need a good assortment of gear. It is sustained with three pretty difficult sections with the most difficult of the three being at the end. Great movement and beautiful features the whole way. I think this route is a classic and one of the best I've done at the city....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
