This large face is seldom visited despite being so close to Hidden Valley and having a handful of fun climbs.
Park in the large gravel lot north of Echo Tee, follow the marked trail past the south face of Echo Cove, and then continue past the south end of Echo Rock where you'll make a left to reach the East Face. Approach time is about 10 minutes from the car.
