Access Issue: Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project- Closures in effect as of 1/25/19 Details
Large portions of Mt Elden are closed to entry due to forest thinning as a part of the Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project. The closures are temporary but have an undetermined expiration date.
This is a great traditional pitch with a variety of good crack moves and good protection, however the anchors are guarded by a perplexing and reachy 5.11 crux involving a hard to see toe divot and a sharp, gravel-filled pinkie jam at the lip...with gear at your feet. Top out before bothering to clip the anchor, then get them more easily from above. For people shorter than 5'8" this crux may feel impossible, and is not recommended. A shorter 5.9 variation of this crack line escapes right with a wide stem to the big ledge and an anchor.
