North America, United States, Oregon, Elephant Rock, Sixes Mountains, Southern Oregon Coast Range

Elephant Rock, Sixes Mountains, Southern Oregon Coast Range. On July 4, Wayne Wallace, Tim Olson and I climbed five pitches up the Elephant’s Trunk (as seen from the northwest) with a sixth pitch on the summit block, an incredible andesite plug. Long run-outs on the face climbing were protected by thin pins, which gave good belays.
