Description

This is the big prominent buttress directly across from the rest stop over on the freeway. It is most popular for base jumping, and is simply known as the "Echo Exit." On the far left toward the impressive prow, this wall has some grafiti from the 1800's advertising to settlers for the "Salt Lake House". This historical site is known as the "Salt Lake House Billboard" -- thus "Billboard Wall". I believe this is the tallest wall in Echo, and "Gypsy Soul" the tallest route in Echo at 500' (5 pitches). The rock is loose, the views are great, and the passing trains thunder past. Right now very little established climbing -- some bolts on the prow, and "Gypsy Soul" going up the middle of the wall and moving to the prow at the top.
Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details

Getting There

1.59 miles past turning right onto the highway off of the exit. Base jumpers parking lot is at about 1.49 miles, but in order to access the climbing on this wall without trespassing, it is best to continue to the 1.59 mile mark, where there is a parking pull off. The trail up to Gypsy Soul is back towards the Exit about 300 ft from this parking lot.
