One route left of Thin Man, Rap Echo climbs a steep gray schist wall and moves slightly left into lower angled orange rock. The transition from steep to slabby presents the crux of the route. I distinctly remember fearing for my shins while I was contemplating standing on the glassy smear at the lip of the slab. Many have trusted the smear and have stood up, only to encounter thirty feet of hyper technical smearing and edging. Many others, however, have taken the whip. The fall is a big one, but it's pretty safe.
Maybe it should be called "Slab Echo."

Hello all, just letting people know. I left draws on this route today. Was climbing and took a pretty big whip above the 3rd draw, came about 2 ft from the deck. I was a little sketched so I left them up there for next week when I get back on it. Thanks and any and all are welcome to climb on them!
