Description Suggest change

Touch and Go (5.9) is the 3-star classic must-do. However, direct morning sunlight can cause this 5.9 to feel a full grade harder. Vogel lists 6 other routes on the Touch And Go face, ranging from 5.9 to 5.12b/c, none of which see 1/1000 of the traffic of the main attraction.

Getting There Suggest change

From the "Echo Tee" (where the road branches off to Barker Dam or Hidden Valley Campground), hike north (10 min?) along the wash between Echo Rock (Stichter Quits, Double Dip) and Echo Cove. Touch And Go Face will be on your left (west). Scramble up boulders to get to the base of the routes.
