This face hosts a mix of moderate cracks and bolted faces, moderate to hard. Flaring cracks, flaky cracks, polished slab and face, pocketed face.
A shady spot in the spring afternoon. The routes on the right are a walk off to the right. The face routes lower off bolt anchors. The classic ZZZZZ
(5.9) is located on this portion of rock.
Park at Echo Rock Parking Lot and walk under the EBGBs Boulder and around the right-hand side of Echo Rock past TS Special. Follow the trail across open desert heading towards the left end of Little Hunk, pass around the end of Little Hunk, the climbs start on the right.

This is a 2-bolt direct start to ZZZZZ. Begin about 30 feet right of the normal start and climb up to and onto a dike (5.9), then tiptoe left to join ZZZZZ.
