Our first time in the Sawtooths, so: Mountaineer's Route on Elephant's Perch.



First we rented a canoe and paddled ourselves and our gear across the lake to the Transfer camp, where we left the canoe for pickup by the shuttleboat.



Then hiked in (in the rain), scampered up the route between storms, hiked out (in the rain) and grabbed the shuttle back to the Lodge.

$5 Fee for parking at the trailhead is no longer required as of July 2005. This was confirmed in conversations with the staff at the store and also with several locals climbing in the area.

The Redfish Lake turn off is 5.5 miles SOUTH of Stanly along Hwy 75. The Lodge is 1.5 miles from this turn off. The cost of the boat ride is now $6.00 each way. Forest Service fee's are no longer required. The turn off from the main hiking trail to Elephants perch is identified as the only time you are close enough to see the river since the start of the trail. If you find a talus field soon after you see the river, turn back.

There are many technical routes that could be added to the Routes section- I thought an important thing to add was the descent route. Given, the word of mouth nature of beta, this info will save people some time and effort.

The 3rd gully (looking up from the biv site) is the easiest way up and down the west side of the Perch. It's a little longer hike but it avoids the short 5th class section in the main gully.
