Fenn Gliddich, or "The Fenn," is an unusual feature for Echo Cliffs, and adds fun variety to the norm at Echo.

Fun and exciting moves on a unique feature, excellent protection. Needs more traffic to clean off the loose bits.

I thought this was a stellar climb - we did two variations of it. One variation sticking only to the feature and not stemming and the other variation stemming. There were some loose bits just after the overhang/bulge as you moved left, a bit freaky, but the other holds above it felt solid.
Nice placement of the anchors on this route - at first I thought...shit, no anchors! and then I looked over and there they were, great for clean rapping.

Really fun climb with some interesting moves. Somewhat uncertain holds (it's always exciting when a block creaks when you grab it) and the potential for some somewhat less-than-clean falls made this a fairly adventurous climb.

Interesting fun climb. Still some loose stuff that will clean up with time and plenty of good holds to climb around the wigglers (chosstastic!). 10a if you climb the rib only, 5.8 if you stem the right wall at the crux.

Only 5.9 if you use liberal stemming between the arete and the wall to the right. Super fun, nonetheless--airy and exposed.

For full value, climb the "fin" only. Don't even touch the right wall.
