Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>


Another good, short, bouldery route. The crux is encountered between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. The starting pocket moves pulling out of the cave also require a motivated tugger.


This route starts on the shelf and climbs pockets out the steepest, deepest part of the low cave.


Bolts. Best to stick clip the first bolt. Lower of chains at about 30 feet.

Brutal start, hardest move on the wall...hope you're a lefty and like doing one arm lock offs.

Did you mean hardest move on the route? Definitely not the hardest move on the wall. With proper heel-toe action the start is V5- definitley no southpaw one arm strength required. The redpoint crux is higher.
