Description 

The Tea Room is the most recent area established at Echo Cliffs. While the Tea Room marks the eastern boundary of route development at Echo Cliffs, with its concentration of quality 5.10s, it is worth the time and effort to access. The Tea Room offers eight quality sport routes from 5.9 - 5.10c. The Tea Room sits in an alcove on the terrace adjacent to the Black Face. The Black Face terrace and the Tea Room are approached via a short, easy 4th class scramble from the base trail right of the Easy Street area. The routes in the Tea Room remain shady, except for a brief sun exposure at midday. The routes in the Tea Room are relatively new and have yet to see the volume of traffic to thoroughly clean up and as with all areas at Echo Cliffs beware of loose holds and the use of a helmet is advised.

Getting There 

This alcove is located on the far east end of the cliffs, and is about 40 feet right of the Black Face.
