Rock / Ice Climbing Reviews for Elephant Rock Near Heise Idaho
Elephant Rock is a great place to do some social climbing. It is a giant boulder in an empty field. So your belay station is flat. I bring my kid and set up his play pen and do some climbing.
Most of it is bolted. You can lead or set up sweet top roped routes. Traversing the whole side of the rock is a great work out.

Rock Climbing at Elephant Rock is great. There are often lots of other people there and this is a great place for beginner to get some rock climbing advice. There is an open grass field to put your climbing gear together on. Lots of routes and most a bolted. Elephant Rock is overall just a fun place to climb. You can stop for pizza on the way home at the Heise Pizza place.
