Description

The Hone Wall has been called Echo's sport climbing area but as far as I can tell had seen much less climbing than it was deserving of. This was a result of some serious run out climbing and often small sketchy gear. There has recently been some retro-bolting going on here opening up some great climbing for a wider audience. Even with the addition of bolts some people will want a few pieces of small gear to protect the run out at the top of many of these routes especially as seepage can add a serious pucker factor to otherwise easy ground. The crag is several hundred feet long and maybe 90 feet tall at its max, much of the left side is vertical and the right side a bit slabby with an overlap guarding its top. You can lower sport style from the routes I've been on then rap from some pretty sweet homemade anchors, no joke they really are sweet, to clean the routes.

Getting There

Hike past the Grunge Wall about five minutes, you will come to a clearing with a line of three bolts and an anchor this is the first route you will see on The Hone wall. The main wall is a couple of hundred feet farther and much larger.
