Description [Suggest Change]
"Casey at the Bat" climbs the beautiful orange face via a prominent roof and the shallow dark watercourse at the left end of Easy Street. The climb is long and a rope stretcher, so be conscious of where the ends of the rope are! From a stance, on a block above the trail, climb the short face on pockets to gain a shelf below the roof. Pull the roof to a large pocket and continue up the steep headwall on small positive incut holds. Continue climbing through a bulge and a small corner on featured orange rock to an anchor on the left. This is one of the best 5.10s at Echo Cliffs and a deservedly popular route. Named for a route developer's dog, Casey.
Location [Suggest Change]
This is the second route from the left on the Easy Street/Far Side section of the wall. The start is 10 feet right of Blackjack, at the foot of a small hill.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
