Description

This rock, which hosts at least two very worthy problems, looks like an elephant from just about any angle. It even has a trunk on the blunt arete facing the Arch Boulder.

Getting There

At the junction of the trails there are really only two climbable blocks to choose from. This is the one that looks like Babaar on an acid trip.

I agree about the in between line. It is actually pretty fun, and makes for a good warm up. I think this boulder has a couple other lines too. My friends and I climbed a problem to the right of Huge Mammal. We started at the low sit start, threw to the rail, then did an interesting top out. It probably goes at V2 and dealing with the tree is the crux (maybe call it tree beard?). Also, there are some interesting slab problems and eliminates on the side of the boulder where you jump down ranging from V0 to V2 or so. I found this was a good place to take beginners. Nov 6, 2009
Yeah, Eckhard,
There is a line between "Think Hides" and "Elephant Trunk." I can't recall who the FA'er was, but I think (V1) sounds about right. There is currently no name for this line, but if you want to give it a name I will add it to the roster and update the photo beta. Happy hunting to all....
