Description

Little Hunk despite it's name is a rather large formation that's located opposite Echo Rock's East Face. Although not very far from the road it tends to see much less traffic compared to the Echo Cove and Echo Rock areas.

The rock here varies some in quality with the southwest face having generally light-colored grainy rock while much of the northeast face is sprinkled with a nice patina which lends itself to climbing.

Getting There

From the large gravel lot north of 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 or continue around the north end to reach the northeast face. Approach time is about 10-15 minutes from the car.

The SW face has many fine routes on its left side including the old school slab testpieces "Trespassers Will Be Violated" 5.10c * PG/R and "Compassion of the Elephants" 5.10c * R. "Abstract Roller Disco" 5.11a PG is another challanging slab in the center section. "The Chair" sits atop the SW face right side where the interesting roof routes "Roofing Company"5.10a * and "Monkey Business" 5.8 * are. However, it is the shady or northern facing sections that have some of Little Hunk's best routes. See the NE center for "Shady Grove" 5,10b ** and "Playing Hookey" 5.10a**.The NE face right side has several of the best in the area, notably "ZZZZZ" 5.9 ** R. Dec 2, 2003
