Echo Cove has a mix of bolted face and traditional cracks. The access is easy, the climbing is good, and the crowds are heavy. Lots of opportunity for toproping.
Drive past the Hidden Valley Campground, turn left at the sign for the Desert Queen Ranch, and park in the obvious, large lot on the right. Alternatively, drive past that lot and park in the pullout on the west end of the cove. Either follow the wash towards Echo Rock proper and scramble over boulders into the east end of the Cove, or (preferred) just walk into the west end.
