Choss Cave in Mill Canyon, Echo Canyon
|Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>|
This wall was developed in 2002-2003 by Martin Berzins, Max Dufford, and Walter Anyan. A steep cave offering powerful, shorter routes on cobbles. This cave has cleaned up to be quite solid, but holds still occasionally break.
There are numerous link-ups of every imaginable combination. I did not list these.
The wall is shady after 2pm.
To find Choss cave, park off the road about ˝ mile before the Dry wall pull-out. (There is small dirt road to a small opening). Find the small trail and follow either a stream or streambed, depending on season, for about 20 minutes. A small trail heads up right (there were some bones in the stream prior to the trail breaking right). Follow this trail up a drainage for about 5 minutes, then you should see a large cave up and left.
Access to this cave is restricted from late Dec to April 15.
