This is a face climb in the middle of Echo Rock on the west face. It is route 1615 in the book. It has 3 well spaced bolt with a little flake just after the 3rd bolt. Then on easy grond a long run out to the top to a 2 bolt belay. The crux is trying to get to the 3rd bolt. Walk off to the left.


3 bolt and no gear to place.

This route was quite exciting especially as we did not know what we were on. It just looked like a pleasant route to do. There is a hard move getting past the first bolt to the second and then thin face after the second bolt to reach the small flakes below the third bolt (which is just out of reach at this point). I screwed up by getting into a precarious mantle and had to "grab" the bolt to stand up. Apparently there is a small hold up and left that allows for an easier high step move. You are quite a ways above the second bolt at this point making this a move you don't want to blow! Jun 8, 2006

Who said no gear to place? There are possibilities for small cams in the upper flake - particularly useful if readying oneself for the long runout. Not a sustained route but a tricky little crux above the second bolt makes it quite worrying. Nov 24, 2007
