Description 

At the junction of the Sisters and Hidden Fawn Trails is a small gathering of boulders, and the bulk of the climbing appears to be on just two of them. The Elephant Boulder, so named because it looks like a pachyderm from just about any angle, hosts several quality problems. Across from it is another boulder I have been calling the Arch Boulder, so named for the obvious feature arching over to the next nearest rock. At least one fun, steep problem is on the Arch.
This is a very worthwhile place to stop and unfurl the pads.

Getting There 

Hike up the Sisters Trail for not even a mile to the junction of the Hidden Fawn Trail. Obvious rocks.

The Elephant's Trunk!!  Do try!!

Elephant's Trunk V5-6 6C+  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Pachyderm Boulder
This is a testpiece of sloper skill and balance-intensive footwork. Begin with a right in a good slopey rail and a left on another sloper. Paste a high right foot, rock up and begin the slope-fest. A tenuous, left foot, heel smear and a toss to crumbling, granite texture is only the beginning. A paucity of holds guards the topout from those not willing to fight for it. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
