The Dry Wall is the most popular crag in Echo Canyon. It faces southeast and offers afternoon shade with fun, convenient climbing. Expect a grueling 20 second approach from the road. The wall is very tall and its long gently overhanging nature protects the routes from rain during all but the most intense storms.

Getting There 

2.95 miles up the frontage road (E Echo Canyon Road) from where you turn right onto the frontage road after passing under the freeway. Look for the obvious parking on the south side shoulder of the frontage road.

Climbing Season

Weather station 3.4 miles from here

Pocket Full of Trundles 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII 25 E4 6a  UT : Echo Canyon : The Dry Wall
A good long route on semi-solid rock. Steep and sustained, Pocket Full of Trundles starts on small, positive holds and a cool flake. The climbing quickly turns tricky, and surprises you with powerful crux. Find a nice rest around bolt two then continue on up about 15 feet to the route's redpoint crux just below a large positive pocket. Small deceiving holds through a mini bulge wear the weary climber out, keep truckin' to a decent rest or two then finish direct on the steep, pumpy face....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Hey people, lost my wedding ring at the Dry Wall 2/14/11. Good karma and beer if anyone finds it.

Most of the routes here are fixed. Also, most of the anchors have biners on them for everyone's convenience. Please don't take the biners, they are not there because someone bailed from the anchors!

Does anyone have more info on The Lowe Route 5.10c? It's listed on the inaccurate photo topo, but isn't listed as a route in MP. It's a fun climb and would be cool if we could add it to MP's database.

The fixed draws look very suspect right now. The dogbones on the draws bake in the sun in the morning and are very faded. I would like to replace the ones on the 12a "Stop That Train" with chain. Also the 'biners that take the most falls seem very worn (I removed the carabiner at the crux of "STT" because it seems to have a nice sharp edge.) I think the whole cliff could use an upgrade to steel hardware. Until this happens I recommend clipping your own draws.
