Description 

What a good route, with even better views and exposure. One of the longer routes at Echo. Climb the blunt arete to a 2 bolt anchor just below the trees. The crux is a little past mid height at a fixed cam.
My 60 meter rope just barely gets me down, but I've been on it with other "60s" and had to do two raps (which is easy enough).


Location 

The obvious rounded arete on "The Dream Wall"


Protection 

Standard rack. There is one fixed pin, and one fixed cam.

Great route, it would be a classic anywhere. It is a rope strecher, on shorter ropes we have had to rap into the gulley on the left. Fun slab climb to the left of the arete also.
