Description

Vastly different in character than the southwest side of Little Hunk, this side tends to be steeper, more featured and overall have much better rock. Large sections of dark patina are conspicuous but the very best rock here is a smooth grey patina which lends itself nicely to climbing.

A wide range of both crack and face routes are available to choose from with ratings in the 5.7 to 5.13+ range, although most are 5.12 and under.

Some of the better climbs here include ZZZZZ (5.9 R), Electralux (5.9), Playing Hookey (5.10a), Shady Grove (5.10b), Point of No Return (5.10c), Power Failure (5.11a), Electric Blue (5.11c), Changes (5.11c) and New Deal (5.13d).

Getting There

From the large gravel lot at Echo Tee follow a well-marked trail east past the south end of Echo Rock into an open area where the Little Hunk formation will come into view. Continue northeast on the obvious trail which leads to the base of the southwest face and then continue around the north end to reach the northeast face. Approach time is about 10-15 minutes from the car.

The left side of Little Hunk's East Face (where Disrythmia, New Deal etc. are located) has been sometimes referred to as the "Vertical Adventure Wall". Jan 16, 2009

The route density, distance from the road, and selection of grades make this a great wall for hot days in Josh. Nov 17, 2008
