Echo Tower is the large tower across from the Kingfisher and uphill from Cottontail tower. It is one of the 5 major towers in the Fishers, and has a lot of routes ranging from moderate clean aid, difficult scary free, and utterly heinous aid. It was the first(and currently only) major tower in the Fisher group to go free when Stevie Haston freed Phantom Spirit at 5.12
Routes are initially approached from the main trail. Depending on which face is being climbed, scramble up the gully between Echo and the Kingfisher or Echo and the Titan.
