Description

Throne Rock is the name given to a collection of routes that ascend the large boulders on the right side of the main Echo Canyon area. There are two very good routes in the area – Orient Express (5.9) and Jack Knife (5.5). The first boulder contains the Practice Slab, an easy top rope face. There are three routes on the boulder behind the Practice Slab (including Orient Express), while the large boulder leaning against the wall at the top of the purple climber’s trail contains Jack Knife.

Getting There

From the large boulders and information board at the base of the Echo Canyon trail, hike to the right until you find the purple climber’s trail. Climb the trail until you see Motorboat Rock off to the left. Break right and follow the rock to the Throne Rock area. A little scrambling and boulder hopping is required to reach the climbs.
