A group of seven of us, including Kessler (my 11 year old son) and I climbed Elephant Butte. As always, it didn't disappoint and provided one of the best views in the world.
Because the route was dry except for one pool to stem, it was an easier climb than last time.
All seven of us did the climb without any problems and we enjoyed the views for a long time before heading back down.
After descending Elephant Butte, we did an impromptu climb of Owl Rock. SP member Liba and her partner were climbing the rock and we asked if we could borrow their rope to climb to the top in order to set up a top rope with my rope (we did not bring a climbing rack).
Five of us climbed or attempted Owl Rock with varying degrees of success. Kessler made it to the crux.
It was a fun afternoon of playing around on the rocks before heading back to Moab.
December 25 2005
We got a late start so we could attend church in the morning.
After meeting SP member Day Hiker in Moab, my wife, kids, and I, drove to the trailhead. The kids, wife, and I did a few quick scrambles, before they headed off to the Windows to do some hikes there.
Dayhiker and I then climbed to the summit of Elephant Butte arriving at the car just in time to see the sunset on Balanced Rock. Great climb, and one of the best views in the world.
