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.
An excellent route located uphill to the right from Sphinx crack. This crack is easy to find as it forms the opposite side of the Sphinx fracture. Surmount overhang 8' off the ground. Continue to second overhang (crux) and enjoy continuous but easier hands and finger climbing shortly after. Belay is not fixed so save a few 2" pieces for the top, a bodyweight belay could suffice.
