Crumbly Rock. One crack route. Gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon-evening. Secluded from the views of the hikers until you reach the summit. Elephant Rock is a 30 foot boulder that promptly looks like an Elephants face. a crack splits the boulder diagonally with a jug above the crack that acts as the elephants eye. The one and only climb starts on the South facing side.
