Comments: 2nd pitch is non-existent, don't waste time or energy hauling gear up there. Crack is shallow & packed with mud and there's nothing to sling.

Comments: Sticking very strictly to the mileage listed in the guidebook to make our turns we were actually able to navigate our way out there without a hitch, in a mid-sized rental nonetheless! Not sure if I'd have driven my own vehicle that far or not tho... Anyhoo, we were able to park just before the wash starts.

Comments: A full day of slogging up steep terrain, literal mountains of loose rock, and dizzying exposure on extremely narrow terrain is rewarded with incredible views. Totally worth it. Look around and you'll find some raps avail to bypass the cruxes on descent. Only used a 0.3 & 0.4 cam and a few slings on the only real pitch, but brought up to #1, a few med nuts and one strand of a 70m half rope (short pitch). The second of the three bolts encountered is jacked, partially pulled out & angled.

Location: Idaho > South Idaho > City of Rocks > Elephant Rock > Elephant Rock - East > Columbian Crack (5.7)

Comments: As of 9/25/13 the anchor bolts on the final pitch are very wobbly (not just loose). A 70m will not safely get you back to the ledge from the actual summit. If you read the comments for "pygmy alien", Caleb has a good description for the walk-off.
