Description 

This area is new to Echo Cliffs, and has several nice moderate climbs. Most of the climbs need to be climbed a bit more to finish cleaning them up.

This alcove is shady during all but the middle couple hours of the day, and is a nice option when it's warm out.


Getting There 

This alcove is located on the far east end of the cliffs, and is about 40 feet right of the Black Face.
