  • Description 

    THE NORTH FACING, SOUTH SIDE OF THE GROTTO HAS BEEN POSTED AND CLOSED TO PROTECT ENDANGERED PLANTS!!!
    The Park Service has ignored climbing activity at Echo Cliffs with the expectation that climbers would police themselves, but activities such as dogs at the base of the cliff, trash, tissue paper/feces, and loud music have put climbers on notice and on the radar.


    Location 

    Climbs upstream, on the south side of The Grotto, from "Game Boy" have been removed, posted, and closed.


    Protection 

    NO PROTECTION, NO ANCHOR!!

    Fun new moderate route for the Grotto. Really nice to have another long route in the Grotto. Entertaining moves on a steep featured wall. In the shade all day.

    Hell of a moniker for a modern day classic 5.9 at Echo.
