Description

Echo Tower is the large tower across from the Kingfisher and uphill from Cottontail tower. It is one of the 5 major towers in the Fishers, and has a lot of routes ranging from moderate clean aid, difficult scary free, and utterly heinous aid. It was the first major tower in the Fisher group to go free when Stevie Haston freed Phantom Sprint at 5.12

The summit is a wild exposed ridge with no anchor on the highpoint. It is one of the airiest places in the desert.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Getting There

Routes are initially approached from the main trail. Depending on which face is being climbed, scramble up the gully between Echo and the Kingfisher or Echo and the Titan.
