A delicate and touchy slab climb up the SE face of Elephant Rock. Chimney the back or climb the front of the large boulder, then ascend the slab using rounded holds and sloping feet. With a mid-point crux, there are just enough features to get this done.


Tres Amigos is on the southeast face of Elephant Rock, and is the second bolted route left of Columbian Crack.


Five well-spaced, well-placed bolts. End at a shared chain anchor.

The first bolt is very high (maybe 35 feet), though the climbing is moderate to get there. From there all the most difficult moves are just above bolts. I thought this climb was just as hard as it's neighbor Heironimous Bosch. Spicy....yet very fun.

I am not sure that these side by side lines were not inadvertently reversed in their ratings and descriptions. This line seemed harder than "H.B."
