Cherry Bomb.

This is a fun, 50m-long low-angle face climb on the main southwest face of Echo Rock. It is between Gone In 60 Seconds (on the left) and Stichter Quits (on the right).


3 bolts

You can TR this route from the bolts at the top of Stichter Quits if you have a 70m rope. Not all that exciting, but worth doing if you are in the area.

This route is perfectly bolted for the three cruxes (10d, 10b, 10a). After the third bolt, it is a ~60ft 5.5 runout to the anchors. Watch out for the loose flakes about 20ft before the anchor, they are about to peel off.

Bolt 2 and 3 are spinning button heads. Would like to see them retro-bolted but oh well
