|Echo Rock - West Face
Two bolts close to each other protect the crux, which is not far off the deck, after which the route cuts left on some large hollow flakes to another bolt and a long but easier runout to anchors on top.
As with most of the older Josh slab routes this one is somewhat runout, but the crux is well protected. Named after a 1974 movie of the same name which later (2000) got remade.
Two routes left of Stichter Quits, on the left side of Echo Rock.
3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")

I would say the "runout" at the top is ~80' of no harder than 5.5 slab climbing. Well worth the excitement!

You can rap/TR this line with a 70M. The anchors are not setup for rappel, so you must traverse left or right to get off.
