Elephant Rock

Climbs 30 – Rocktype UNKNOWN – Altitude Tidal – Faces E

Crag features
Seacliff of mixed igneous rock that actually does look like an elephany! Routes mainly 15-22m in length and generally high quality. Mainly best for mid 6's up to 7c. High-quality gear [ie bolts] and all routes have lower offs. Gets sun till lunchtime. Mainly tidal but some routes available at any tide. Harder routes can be greasy, easier routes are more open.

Access notes
Park on the minor road leading to Usan just beyond a white gate. Follow the track down under the rail bridge to the small clifftop graveyard. Take the steep and slippy (after rain) path down the south side of the Rock and then go through the first cave to access the east face.
