BETA PHOTO: Echo Rock - West Face Left


The Trough is a wide chimney that splits the SW face of Echo Rock. It's the obvious crack on the far left side of the photo, about 40 feet left of (and around the corner from) Double Dip. You can't miss it, but you should probably try to anyway. Not really worth doing -- definitely not with climbing shoes and a rope.


I guess you could throw in some pro, and a standard rack will suffice. But it's 5.0 -- not worth hauling a rope and rack.
