I always thought this area derived its name from an elephant-shaped boulder near the top of the wall.
Elephant rocks is a popular area for guided groups as the routes are short, not too exposed, and out of the way. There are some interesting climbs to the right (when looking at the cliff) of Elephant Rocks, one being Rainbow Crack, a surprisingly good 5.9 jam crack. Also good bouldering can be found in a radius around the cliff.
I would vote that the best roped climbing in this area can be found at Monolith Blocks, but that's just me.

|In the main picture for this section, there is that big overhang. There are 2 cracks that go ground up in the overhang. Have they been done? If so, any idea on ratings? They look tuff and very cool.|
