Slab on the northern face that follows up an arete. Can see it from the parking area. Well protected slab that is fun if you like slab routes. Need a 60m rope.

Just Say Go is the best moderate on Elephant, but this arete is worth doing. No real crux, laid back for the grade.

My dad first had me try to lead this when i was 11, but never made it past the second bolt. Finally was able to try it again and although it was fun, it wasn't super amazing or anything.

3 out of 5 stars Sweet moves.

I am not really a sport climber. The route was fun, but we ended up backing off it at the 3rd to last bolt. You're easily looking at a 15 to 20 ft whipper on each of the 2 last bolts. Not my cup o tea. Agree with other comments about not getting tunnel vision on the bolt line. Adding PG13 as I think you could easily get hurt on the last 2 bolts. 10a felt right.

Western slab is far tougher than that of the Midwest. I've onsited 11a slabs at the Red River Gorge. This nearly shut me down . . .
