Access Issue: Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details
The Echo Canyon climbing areas are located within the Henefer-Echo Wildlife Management Area. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources closes all access to the WMA each year from January 1 to the second Saturday in April to protect wintering wildlife.
Echo Canyon, further East in another drainage (Pine Canyon) 0.7 miles from Dry Wall. A bolted moderate conglomerate route. The wall is quite isolated despite only a 10 minute approach up the canyon and then a small hillside where Orient Express climbs an arete on Asia. Good quality cobble! Like Maple.
As for Dry Wall, then continue on the frontage road east for about a half mile to a sizeable side canyon with a road that ascends to approx. 300 yards. Some appliance dumping had taken place at the road head. Continue on the trail and head to the best looking crag on the left (west) side and look for bolts up the obvious arete.
