A challenge was laid out last summer by a hiker who has been hiking in the area for a long time. He managed to find a hiking/scrambling/bushwhacking route up Elephant Head from the North Face. He has challenged us to retrace his steps and make it to the top!
Stats: 8 miles off trail in varied conditions that will include intense rock scrambling, crawling on hands and knees under a few bushes, and a lot of fun! Accumulated elevation gain will be 3000 feet.
We will hope to be done in 8 hours.
High clearance vehicles are required.
• 5+ liters of water for a possible long day
• LOTS of FOOD!
• Jacket, hat, gloves
• Headlamp, you never know!
HIKING, BUSHWHACKING, and ROCK SCRAMBLING ARE VERY DANGEROUS SPORTS. By attending this hike you are agreeing that you take full responsibility of yourself and the things you do. Hike at your own risk.
