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 route lies on the right (east)- most solid buttress of the South Face of the Echo Cove Rocks. It is approached via a few slab moves to a small ledge. Climb this line of 6 bolts on the rounded, bulging arete to the top. The crux is down low, starting off of the ledge with a huge high-step to get feet above the bulge. The handholds here are small and sharp. The route felt like 5.10c to me, but will be far harder for those far shorter. Flexibility might make up for height until such point tha...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
