Description

Echo Cove is one of the most popular climbing spots in the Park. It has: easy access, flat bases, good, short moderate and moderately difficult routes.

The southern side of the main "Cove" features featured vertical and slightly overhanging rock. It is shady most of the day (particularly in winter when the sun is low in the sky). Routes are easily top-roped; though most can be lead.

Getting There

Continue straight (onto a dirt road) for about 0.25 mile (past the large parking lot turnoff). A small fence lot will be found on the right at the "mouth" of the Cove. If full, park about 150 yards back at a larger fenced lot.
