Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details
The Echo Canyon climbing areas are located within the Henefer-Echo Wildlife Management Area. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources closes all access to the WMA each year from January 1 to the second Saturday in April to protect wintering wildlife.
DescriptionA good long route on semi-solid rock.
Steep and sustained, Pocket Full of Trundles starts on small, positive holds and a cool flake. The climbing quickly turns tricky, and surprises you with powerful crux. Find a nice rest around bolt two then continue on up about 15 feet to the route's redpoint crux just below a large positive pocket. Small deceiving holds through a mini bulge wear the weary climber out, keep truckin' to a decent rest or two then finish direct on the steep, pumpy face.
Long and continuous Pocket Full of Trundles is a trademark route and the second best warm-up for the area.
