Lots of missing info.

I tried to climb this peak using the info in this post - it is either totally wrong or missing lots of important info!

#1: if you climb to the saddle of Elephanthead and go right, as suggested, you will face 100 foot cliffs that you certainly can't climb without ropes!

#2: the obvious ascent is visible from the Mission Creek trail on your way up. It's a steep, but grassy and easily climbable ascent that is not visible from the backside, Suce Creek, where we came from. I assume it's easy, but after wasting so much time looking for the other ascent, we didn't have the energy to go for it.

Suce Creek to Mission Creek trailhead is a great and fairly easy through hike.

Re: Lots of missing info.

Sorry Draqqi, I can see how it was confusing. I meant you "vere" before the cliffs you mention. Before the actual saddle you start the "vere". Probably difficult to see coming from Suce crk. Sorry it cost you the summit.

No worries

Another day, another time...I'm excited to go check out the caves!
