This wall is perhaps the closest and most accessible to the parking at Echo Rock. It's southwest aspect is warm and it should be considered when choosing the time of day and year to climb here. The climbing is mixed with a fair number of bolted and gear protected lines, although a few of the bolted lines are not so well protected and are somewhat mis-represented for gear and grade in Vogel's book (i.e. Flake and Bake easier than 5.8, but not protected as well as noted).
From the main parking lot at Echo Tee, look into the West Face of Echo Rock. The nearest rock at the left side of this entrance is the right most end of South Face of Echo Cove Rocks. If you parked in the optional lot just north of the "tee" parking lot, you are more or less at the left end of it's base (it is just East of you).

This dihedral starts right off the deck with some pretty interesting and thin moves, easing up as the route progresses. At the horizontal, if desired, place a small cam for that "Extra" security. Walk off toward Keys Ranch. It does involve a few fun moves...can be downclimbed via ramp with some fifth class friction moves...not recommended for beginners......[more] Browse More Classics in CA
