Access Issue: Please use WAG bags for human waste and pack it out! See request from the Wilderness Ranger in the Sawtooths.
Hello! I am a current Wilderness Ranger In the Sawtooths and would like to propose adding using wag bags to the description for the elephants perch. We are seeing increased visitation from both climbers and hikers and the impact of human waste is really piling up. While it is not a current Forest Service regulation, I believe we, the climbing community, can lessen our impact on this fragile area by packing out our human waste. Wag Bags are not currently available in Stanley.
A long independent route up the typical small corners with 2 hard pitches. The first pitch is often wet and the second pitch has a fragile flake.
