Closed: Private Property - Sphinx Rock is on private property
6/3/06 -- Sphinx Rock (aka Elephant Rock) in Pinegrove, Colorado, is located on private property. Trespassing for any reason is illegal. Trespassing will now be enforced with the assistance of the local sheriff's office. Violators will be held accountable for towed vehicles, citations, and any legal actions.
This route follows the right edge of the slab that cuts the Sphinx in half. On the appoach, you'll see the obvious slab facing you. Walk up the ramp as far as you want or until you find a level place to stach your gear, then head up and right on the friction slab. The first two bolts are of rather poor quality. This climb can be done in one or two pitches (a 60m rope is nice).
