Description

This route is located about 80 feet right of Pope's Crack, on the south end of Echo Rock. Start out of a "Gotcha"-Cat's Claw bush/tree to reach a left-leaning crack (5.9). Above, doubled bolts protect moves left onto dark patina rock with a thin crack (thin cams, stoppers). Standing atop the patina to reach the next bolt is definately the psychological crux, though the thin smearing above the 3rd (last) bolt is probably technically harder.

This rarely climbed route is actually well worth doing and could benefit from more ascents (it is just a bit gritty in places). Though a little necky of a lead, very small cams can be used to protect the intimidating step up to the 2nd bolt.

Protection

3 bolts (1st doubled) Small cams to 2 inches. Both 1992 and Bartlett guides are wrong in saying that there are 3 bolts on upper face (there are only 2)
