Description

This wall is perhaps the closest and most accessible to the parking at Echo Rock. It's southwest aspect is warm and it should be considered when choosing the time of day and year to climb here. The climbing is mixed with a fair number of bolted and gear protected lines, although a few of the bolted lines are not so well protected and are somewhat mis-represented for gear and grade in Vogel's book (i.e. Flake and Bake easier than 5.8, but not protected as well as noted).

The rock here is generally good and routes range from 5.6 to 5.12 in difficulty. There are no "super classics" here but there are some lines worth doing if in the area. The most well recognized of these are: R.M.L. (5.9), Sitting Here in Limbo (5.9), Axe of Dog (5.10a), Out on a Limb (5.10b), C.S. Special (5.10c), Possessed by Elvis (5.10c) & The Riddler (5.12a). There are descents in both directions from the summit and you will generally want to walk off in whatever direction you are closest to.

Getting There

From the main parking lot at Echo Tee, look into the West Face of Echo Rock. The nearest rock at the left side of this entrance is the right most end of South Face of Echo Cove Rocks. If you parked in the optional lot just north of the "tee" parking lot, you are more or less at the left end of it's base (it is just East of you).
