Description

The Alcove offers slightly overhung routes that tend to have somewhat smaller holds than others of their grade at Echo Cliffs. The Alcove is also home to one of only three crack lines at the crag. The Alcove routes are in the shade in the afternoon, and the routes on the right wall are also in the shade in the morning.

Getting There

Located uphill and around the corner from the Tower of Zen. The Alcove is 10 - 12 minutes from the Grotto.
