Echo Rock just before a November storm in 04


This is the large slabby face that can be seen on the approach and from the road and is home to a large number of slab climbs from 5.6 to 5.11+ with most in the 5.10+ and under range. The majority ofthe routes here are fully bolted and require nothing more than quickdraws, but be warned that sport routes they are not.

Getting There 

Park in the large gravel lot north of Echo Tee and follow the marked trail past the south face of Echo Cove to enter a sandy wash and hang a left that leads to the base. Allow 5-10 minutes for the hike.
