Description

This formation stands on the way to the Citadel, and doesn't resemble an elephant as such, but includes a really nice 5.6 regular route, an adventurous 5.7 crack, and a moderately interesting 10a TR from the rap anchor at the top. The 3rd class to the base of the climb requires care, but is part of what makes climbing at this formation feel like a bit of an adventure.

One big win is that the majority of the climbing is in the shade, so this is a nice formation to climb on hotter days.

Getting There

The approach is quick and well marked. About 15min from the parking lot.
