BETA PHOTO: Elephant Walk with Equinox to the right


A very good and somewhat exciting climb up the blunt arete left of Equinox. The start is a little sporty as you climb up and slighty right to the arete proper, and once on the arete provides continuously steep and technical moves throughout it's length. Near the top there is a perfect geologic anomaly (at least for Josh) to be enjoyed. Three stars out of five.


5 bolts, anchors (same as Equinox)

An awesome climb that looks like a "Doable" climb and a good "warm-up" before heading up "that" crack to its right, but be aware, its a heads up outing and is very Joshesque, when you finish you will feel either proud or want to call it a day.
