Large buttress at the head of Echo Canyon

Getting There 

Walk down the La Luz Trail and take the cut off to the tram terminal. At the Domingo Baca Overlook (see the echo canyon description) look for the man made retaining wall. Walk down hill towards YFT. Stay left or south and go down a little gully into a notch. Hike SW staying high through some talus until you locate a little notch which requires a short down climb. This puts you into a second notch. Hike up and SW to the summit of La Vista and the start of the rappels. The first rappel is Down in a gully off a good tree. A short rap puts you into another notch with aspen and spruce trees with a step gully dropping off to the NE. Cross this gully and scramble up to the top of the rock face. Rap "Raven Steals the Sun". Another option is to walk around to the South and descend the gully that separates La Vista from Hail Peak. Yet another option is to descend Echo Canyon past Yucca Flower Tower.

Route Information3 pitch variation of raven Steals The Sun. Daisy was named in honor of a furry friend who passed. Daisy scoped the lines on La Vista with me before Ravens was completed. A fake flower somehow appeared on my rope stack during the FA. It just so happened to be a white daisy. I figured my old pal was thinking about me. I planted the plastic daisy in a crack and thought of her. So after special consideration I think it would be great to name this route Daisy in memory of my ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
