Banny Root bouldering at Echo View.

Description 

Excellent bouldering is found here. There are also a couple short top ropes. The main area lies below a House known as "Stonehenge". It can be rented for several hundred a night. Be careful not to disturb anyone at the house and don't park in front of it.

Space Invaders is a huge, north facing, overhanging boulder nearby. The climbing is in the 5.11 to 5.12 range. The routes can be led or easily top-roped.

There are two micro domes (the "Space Domes") across the gully to the northwest of Space Invaders that offer short, challenging routes. Use Space Invaders approach, but head up and left to the domes.


Getting There 

Echo View Estates is about two miles from the junction of Sawmill Rd. and Hwy 50. Take the first right, onto Twin Peaks. Park at a dead end just beyond Mountain Canary. Do not disturb the residents. Hike up a gully and the cliff is on the right.

What happened here? This is all screwed up now, I can't add boulders, problems or routes.

Can the boulders be put in a sub catagory? Then the boulder problems can go under each boulder. Almost would be better if Space Invaders and Echo View were separate.

Space Domes, Spaced invaders, and the boulders
