I was wondering why there are not as many multi pitch climbs in echo?

Hell there might be some that i don't know about?

I have only found 2.

Was wondering if any one out there with a drill and some free time would like to put up some lines. I would of course help and buy the bolts and hangers and what ever is needed. ( Wyoming beer )

I would just do it all my self but a place like echo that see's enough traffic should be done right and in safe fashion.

The spot i have in mind is on the left side of the arete were the base jump off of. ( right by the rest area) looks like there are ok size ledges for belay and its tall 400 ft.

There is lots of cliff space would just like to help out at my local crag

It's most likely due to the absolutly horrible rock quality. Obviously there is some decent quality rock in some areas, but the non overhung rock is terrible. The only bolts I would trust would be long glue in's.

I helped out on a 3 pitcher with Kevin a few years ago. Its maybe half a mile east of the Dry wall. It starts in the middle of a graffiti cave. Kevin linked all 3 pitches into 1 monster pitch for the ffa calling it Enter Sandman 5.12cish, 1st pitch is the crux at the lip of the roof. In the middle of the second pitch is a short chossy band that may never clean up but the rest of the route is pretty solid. The route has a very exposed feeling for a sport climb.
