Burly Beast

Tried to climb Elephant Peak via Rock Lake/Libby Lakes. We underestimated the approach time and had to bail midway through the ridge climb (200 foot rap off a knot anchor - yikes) so we could get back to camp before dark. I will be back.

Looks a little licheany :) How was the rock quality? On the approach, did you hike to the col between Rock and Elephant then up to Libby Lakes (or a bit below and west of the lakes)? Curious where you chose to gain the main ridge. Regarding your pic "Checking out Rock Peak", the NE face looks like a fun early season adventure but that N Ridge is a bit...wobbly. Very nice pics, especially like that one where you're retreating through the snow on the west side of the ridge!

Thanks! The rock quality is typical Cabinets but more solid as you gain the ridge. I think I'll just post a map of our route. I'll PM you when I do. I've read your trip report on Rock Peak. That looked like a fun one!
