Description 

Echo Cove is a very popular area with a great selection of single pitch routes on mostly good rock with little to no approach. The various wall allow one to climb here throughout the seasons and at various times of the day.

Getting There 

Park in any of several spots depending upon where you'll be climbing or how crowded it is. The choices are the small turnout near the entrance to Echo Cove proper near Big Moe, the small lot in front of C.S. Special and the large gravel lot just to the south.

This excellent route is located on your right (south) as you walk into the Cove from the parking area. It takes a fairly direct line about 25 feet right of the large right-facing dihedral on the upper portion of the wall (Boulder Dash, 5.9*). The climb name is "short" for big dynamo or "mo", the technique used by the first ascent party to solve the crux move down low. Though this move is now commonly done statically, shorter people often "pop" for the huge hand hold. Great climbing ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
