Description

This route lies somewhere on the second-to-the-right-most (east) solid buttress of the south face of the Echo Cove Rocks. The buttress is easily identifed as being immediately left of a huge flake suspended up off of the ground between this rock and the next buttress to the right. This face sports 2 bolts, although certainly not where the Vogel book details them. The difficulty and severity of the climb depends upon the line taken by the leader. Approach the pitch via a few slab moves to a small ledge, and then begin climbing on natural gear to reach the first bolt (or not) and motor for the top. This is an easy lead, but probably not for a neophyte leader (check your head).

The belay sets well on hand-sized gear, but there are other possibilities too.

To descend, walk/scramble off to the climber's right (east) then south by a big "potato-chip" looking boulder, and then back west toward the base.

Protection

Mixed pro with two bolts. Take a light rack of stoppers, cams, & long slings.
