Seasonal Closure Details


Climb the right of three splitter cracks on The Topknot. Fun jamming with some nice rest jugs thrown in between.


This route is located on The Topknot, the summit block of the Fourth Elephant Buttress.

To descend, scramble down easy rock on the north side into the notch between the third and fourth buttresses


Standard rack. Tree on summit for toprope anchor.


Agree with the above comments, Far Right is a grade harder than the middle route. Used medium to small wires to protect. Apr 15, 2015
