DescriptionIf you've climbed everything else on Elephant Rock or are into hard, thin mantle moves, certainly check out the second pitch of Where Egos Sore.
Chris Barnes recently re-bolted this climb. The climb is now 2 pitches.
The first pitch is a fun safe, fully bolted, 10a sport route which ends at chain anchors below the bulge and 2nd pitch crux mantle. This will become a popular stand alone pitch once people figure out it's there.
The second pitch involves moving left into a small pod and a good rest before the crux bulge. Move up, clip the perfectly placed bolt at the bulge. Paw and grunt your way through the crux mantle move on slopers and poor feet. Let out a sigh of relief and cruise 5.10- terrain past a couple more bolts to the anchor. A single 70 meter rope will get you down but just barely--tie knots in the ends of the rope.
LocationOn the far right end of the north side of Elephant Rock, look for a line of bolts up a green face.
