This large face is seldom visited despite being so close to Hidden Valley and having a handful of fun climbs.

Getting There 

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.

Igor Prince of Poodles 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Echo Rock - East Face
This bolted face route, immediately right of Finger Food, is continuously difficult, tenuous, and interesting climbing for the first 30' after which it eases a bit to more straightforward JT slab work. Stem, palm, crimp and smear your way up the shallow corner until it disappears and a decent face hold and crimpy dike appear. Engineer a sequence to mount these and you can finally rest and compose yourself for the upper half of the pitch. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
