Climber on Beware of Nesting Egos.

Beware of Nesting Egos 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c PG13  ID : City of Rocks : ... : Elephant Rock - North
This is an incredible mixed route to the right of The Pygmees got stoned. It has three widely spaced bolts but you will also need a good assortment of gear. It is sustained with three pretty difficult sections with the most difficult of the three being at the end. Great movement and beautiful features the whole way. I think this route is a classic and one of the best I've done at the city....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
