  • Description 

    Climb up the right side of the block, to the left of Little Giant, past three bolts. Some fun arete moves.


    This route is on a small block with two routes on the right edge of the Grotto, near the Left Flank (see Echo Cliffs photo). Scramble up ledges below and to the right of the block to approach. Little Giant is the rightmost of the two routes.


    3 bolts to open shut anchors shared with Junior.

    Like everything else at Echo, some holds have broken off of here. The arete still allows you get get up fairly easily. Interesting for an 8.
