Description 

Echo Cove is a very popular area with a great selection of single pitch routes on mostly good rock with little to no approach. The various wall allow one to climb here throughout the seasons and at various times of the day.

Getting There 

Park in any of several spots depending upon where you'll be climbing or how crowded it is. The choices are the small turnout near the entrance to Echo Cove proper near Big Moe, the small lot in front of C.S. Special and the large gravel lot just to the south.
