Square Inch Wall is the first real climbing wall at Echo, so named because just about every square inch of the wall is climbable. The majority of the moderate climbs are located here – many quite good. Like the rest of Echo, Square Inch wall is often wet late into the spring, and after a good rain. The routes are all 50 to 60 feet in length. As of the summer of 2006, a large tree at the top of the wall with slings around the base fell over and is perched precariously above a number of the routes to the left of the first wooden ladder.
Follow the approach trail past the jumble of boulders and trees to a point where it turns uphill. Scramble to the base of the wall, and follow it around to the right. The first short wall is the bouldering wall. The next section of 50-60 foot high cliff is the Square Inch Wall. There are a couple of wooden ladders set perpendicular to the wall to help you scramble along the base.

Cooler Sacrifice 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b NH : Echo Crag : 1. Square Inch Wall
A popular route for good reason. Climb the two finger cracks (crux) to a large ledge that slopes up. Above the ledge and to the right of a large roof is a trapezoid shaped block with incredible holds up the left side. Place a good piece of pro at the base of the block, reach up to the holds along the left side, and pull up and over onto the flake. Continue up the flake to anchors on the wall behind the tree....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
