Description 

I've climbed this route a number of times and always enjoyed it. It's well protected and is, actually, 10b. One can attain the first bolt by moving up the obvious ramp right to left. In Bartlett, it's designated route C.


Protection 

3 bolts

This is the first line right of The Trough (5.0).

Man, what a great route! Very thoughtful and technical climbing which doesn't let up until the very end. Quite varied too - not just a straight up slab route but involving lieback moves, traverses, and pretty intense smedging.

Better IMHO than the 5.10 routes to the right of Double Dip. It deserves more of a reputation.

Great route, with a lot of varied climbing. Much more thought provoking than the other routes on Echo Rock.
