Description 

The first pitch is popular. I don't think the entire route is ever done so I'm including the first pitch only.

1st pitch (5.8). Find a right facing corner off the ground under the middle of the Echo Roof. Climb the corner. At the top of the corner is a bolt and a mantle on to a smoth slab. Above that tread right to some solution pockets. Go up to the anchor and rap from there with two ropes.


Location 

Just to the right of Last Tango.


Protection 

Standard rack. For solution pockets: Brown tri-cam, #3 Camalot.

Moves to get above the bolt are 5.8+ or 5.9. And then I backed off, after 20 minutes of trying to figure out a foot sequence I actually believed in. It was cold, and my rubber wasn't sticking reliably, but still.... I wouldn't recommend this unless you're comfortable on 5.10 slab.

"...comfortable on 5.10 slab"?? Of course everyone's perception of a route is unique to their strengths and weaknesses but I think you are going to unnecessarily scare people away from this route with those dire warnings. There is a bolt at the crux and right above that there are two nice holes. One takes a great brown tri-cam and the other a #3 Camalot. This pitch is 5.8 tops. And even though it may seem counter-intuitive cold actually enhances climbing rubber stickiness.
