Comments: An independent anchor for lead-climbers was added to the face at the top of this route after repeated disputes and confusion over the shared anchor on busier days.

Comments: This is a TR variation you can do off the Fen Gliddich anchor. Bring two runners and use a sliding-X configuration on the Fen anchor to equalize it since the directional bolts are far to the right. Rates about 10b/c? and is another route to do if you are seeking shade in the Tea Room on a hot day. Stick to the darker colored and reddish rock. and watch out for loose stuff since this hasn't seen much traffic.


Location: CA : Los Angeles Basin : Santa Monica Mountains : Echo Cliffs : Left Flank : The Sumac Route (5.8)

Comments: Liking this route more and more as it cleans up. Like Ben said, steep and committing, but not really that difficult. The final bolt directly under the sumac bush is camouflaged and a bit difficult to spot. There's still some loose rock inside the crack to watch out for. The face is pretty clean. Our new favorite warm-up route on the wall.

Comments: Just a note since I've noticed a drastic increase in destructive behavior at Echo cliffs just in the last year... mostly, I believe out of ignorance. Evidently a lot of people are simply unaware of the park's rules so here they are for the record:

Echo cliffs is a federally protected wilderness under the National Park Service. Access can be closed if we as climbers do not respect some simple rules. Simply put.. leave no trace. Pack out your trash and don't destroy stuff. Leave the plants and... more >>

Comments: Note: The topo for Corpse Wall in the most recent So Cal guide has a number of errors. Fortunately, since all the grades are moderate you won't really run into trouble. The info and topo here on MP is more accurate.

Comments: A note on Christmas Chronicle. It was put up on a Christmas day and come to find out... Mike originally rated this climb only 5.8.

Climbing this route over decade after it was put up... it had seen zero traffic.. it was covered in loose dirt and lichen and was an extremely intimidating lead with and R-rated fall factor if you didn't have right gear, so the consensus without the FA input was 10- at the time.

These days, it is clean and way less scary. The second bolt is a retro-bolt placed ... more >>
