Elder is a large, suspended boulder that lies at the center of Mecca's south wash. The rock quality is mixed, as are the landings. There is potential for several lines.

Getting There 

From the green gate parking, head downhill, cross East Creek, make a left at the dirt track, follow it past the Mecca Boulder, make a right at the wash, and follow it until the boulder is visible. Reference the page map for its exact location.
