Description

Soaring to 700+ feet, the multi-faceted Echo Cliffs sit just to the south of Cathedral, giving those hiking the start of the south loop trail a stunning swath of stone to gaze at. There are three quality cliff bands, all facing pretty much north, and all housing potential for amazing new lines.

Getting There

Park in the Cathedral/South Loop parking lots and access from those trails. See wall descriptions for more info.
