DescriptionPossibly the best roped climbing the North End has to offer is located at Elephant Rocks.
Is it named for the large boulder at the top of the cliff or the apparent elephant's head upon whose cheek Clearasil Spattered Fantasies (10b) lies? I've never been sure, maybe both.
Elephant Rocks contains two buttresses and the amphitheater between them. Routes will be described accordingly.
Getting ThereActually fairly easy to find. Start at the North Shore parking areas and follow the East Bluff Trail uphill. Maybe a third of a mile from the trailhead you'll encounter an odd-looking sandstone boulder on you're right, just before a small cliff with a smaller cave, and an inside corner. Walk west between the Elephant Boulder and this small cliff. This will deposit you atop Elephant Rocks.
