This odd climb is a left to right rising girdle traverse of Echo Rock.

The route starts by clipping the first bolt of Double Dip and then traversing up and right to the first bolt of Battle Of The Bulge. Continue up and right to the first bolt of Unzipper and then level out and traverse the face, clipping bolts on various routes (you should hit Stichter Quits at it's third bolt), finishing with the last two bolts of Forbidden Paradise.

Much easier than appearances suggest, this is a fun and novel route that has a lot of climbing. When orginally done with a 60 meter rope some simul-climbing was done at the end of the route; perhaps a 70 meter rope would eliminate that.


13 bolts, anchors
