Description 

A great route that deserves more traffic. Ecylias throws every size possible at you from tips to OW. The crux is definitely pulling past the roof off bad fingerlocks, gastons, and dicey stems. If you make it past that, you will be rewarded with great hands and easy OW for another 75 feet. Belay off a big tree (hard to miss).

The second pitch is not recommended, unless you really like 5.6 hands, 5.8 OW, or any other chossy option up there.

Location 

Ecylias climbs the R-facing corner immediately right of Chariots of Fire, with which it shares a 5.8 start in a peg groove. Look for the obvious roof with a fingercrack on the right side.

Protection 

Small to large cams and nuts, maybe triples to #3 and a #4, #5, and maybe a #6 for the very top.

Bring webbing to tr/rap off the tree.
