Elephant Rock


The area has recently been found out to be private so if you wish to climb you need to contact Oberlin Economic Development Office: gateway3@nwkansas.com. Many of the climbers who have climbed it compare it to "es pontas' in Spain which Sharma climbed. This is the BEST climb in Kansas. No matter how lazy you are or the view you have about KS climbing this is one spot you need to climb.


Underside of arch.


Bring lots of pads! The pads need to place all over for maximize protection. Also, parts of the feature are very sharp and need to watch your head.

I'm sure it's exactly like Es Pontas. HA!
