The Echelon Wall is a slightly less distinct area of the chief than some others. It is above the Apron, and is more or less anything left of the South Gully (and thus the Squamish Buttress) but Right of the Sheriff's Badge. 2 lines are on this wall, The Ultimate Everything and Echelon. the former is a modern and popular 5.10 to 5.11 climb, and the latter an obscure moderate free climb with some aid thrown in.
Several routes can be used to access the Echelon area, but to be concise, most anything summiting the Apron will reach a trail that will lead you there.
