This wall is perhaps the closest and most accessible to the parking at Echo Rock. It's southwest aspect is warm and it should be considered when choosing the time of day and year to climb here. The climbing is mixed with a fair number of bolted and gear protected lines, although a few of the bolted lines are not so well protected and are somewhat mis-represented for gear and grade in Vogel's book (i.e. Flake and Bake easier than 5.8, but not protected as well as noted).
From the main parking lot at Echo Tee, look into the West Face of Echo Rock. The nearest rock at the left side of this entrance is the right most end of South Face of Echo Cove Rocks. If you parked in the optional lot just north of the "tee" parking lot, you are more or less at the left end of it's base (it is just East of you).

Locate the four large boulders atop the left end of the south face of South Echo Cove Rock. Bonzo Dog Band is the mostly-left-trending crack system that ends between the middle two of these four boulders. It starts at a large flake just left of a boulder.There is an alternate start for this route just left of this flake, but the old quarter inch bolt was rusted and hangerless as of late October, 2002.
