Description 

This is a small formation to the east of echo rock, next to the west face of Little Hunk. Most routes climb the upper rock section split by an obvious wide crack which is Deep Throat (5.9). To the north sits a smaller formation with a short crack on the west face, which is Eff Eight(5.8).

Getting There 

Park in between Echo Cove and Barker Dam and head north around Little Rock Candy Mountain. Head towards the formation with a splitter crack and hole (Deep Throat). Scramble up right to the base of most of the routes.

High angle slab climbing with dicey smears, balancy weight-shifts and multiple highsteps is what you'll encounter on the way to the anchors on this route.
