PhotoDescr: Elephant Butte is the highest peak in Arches National Park. The peak is a flat-topped cap surrounded by many towers and fins forming one big butte. The easiest way to get there is via West Fins route (YDS 5.4) which two of us climbed in March 2017. Summit register was full. Dry route all the way, two maintained rappel stations one of which is free air, were in great shape.
