Common mistakes are descending/ ascending the 1st and 2nd gulleys south of the Elephant's Perch or descending the north slopes down toward Redfish Creek. While these routes go at Class 4 to Easy 5th class, if you want to optimize your time on the rock routes, use the 3rd gulley south of the Perch for a quick and easy ascent /descent. The north slopes are doable, but require route finding to avoid getting cliffed and even still require small Class 4 moves.
Ascend the 3rd gulley south of the summit. Once on the south ridge of the Elephant's Perch, the terrain is mostly flat. You can also scramble up the East Summit of the Elephant's Perch in addition to the West Summit. While the 3rd gulley is just a third class scramble, be cautious of loose rocks, especially if your not alone. You can go further south of the 3rd gulley and reach the south ridge, but you must pass a small tower along that ridge.
If finishing up a rock route, you may want to keep your helmet on once in the steep, loose 3rd gulley.
