Does anyone have information on a pair of newish looking routes on the upper N. side of Echo (descending from the shiny OP rings)? There's no info on them in the '11 edition of Miramontes, so I thought I'd put a call out to people with a longer history in JTree, instead of creating a new area myself.
These two lines begin from a shady ledge/channel above one of the deep water runnels in the walkoff slab. The right ascends a short, roughly vertical crease/corner, following a variable fingers and hands crack in a corner onto slightly crumbly low-angle slab. It's bolted to hell with new-looking, sandstone-painted metolius hangers, including a couple of bolts in areas protectable with traditional gear. Suggested 5.7-5.8, 1 star.
The second line, at left, follows face moves and thin cracks over the lip onto the slab above. I left this one for another day, and have no further details on it.
Thank you for any questions or information you might have on these routes,
