Description 

In a large alcove on the south face of Echo Rock, starting near the ground, are three closely space crack routes. This is the right one. It's a grainy, well-protected crack with a long move up on a severely flared hand jam at the crux. I thought the crux move was so novel that the route deserves three stars. This location is one of the warmest places in the park on a sunny morning. I had to wait for a very cold day to do the flared hand jam move without falling off due to sweat.
