Description

A good place to go on a sunny day. There is only a small cluster of routes here but in my opinion its well worth the trip. The crag is located up from the river in a wooded area. If you are unfortunate enough to find the climbs you wanted to do occupied you continue down the trail and reach Sentinel Area.

Getting There

There are multiple options for reaching this area. I park at the Lake o' the Dallies parking area. From the parking lot you cross the steet and go past a playground (with an artifical boulder for kids to climb on). Continue by the north end of the lake. As the trail forks take the right trail (Echo Canyon Trail). After passing a small pond and some cliff to your left, look for a rock formation that looks like a human face. Many of the climbs lie to the left around this face. There is an old paved path that leads a couple feet toward the river here as well, that serves as another good landmark for those that don't recognize faces in rock right away.

Top Access: The top is best accessed by hiking to the top of the formation from behind as you pass it on the Echo Canyon trail, look for the easiest way to the top.
