Description

One route left of Thin Man, Rap Echo climbs a steep gray schist wall and moves slightly left into lower angled orange rock. The transition from steep to slabby presents the crux of the route. I distinctly remember fearing for my shins while I was contemplating standing on the glassy smear at the lip of the slab. Many have trusted the smear and have stood up, only to encounter thirty feet of hyper technical smearing and edging. Many others, however, have taken the whip. The fall is a big one, but it's pretty safe.

Maybe it should be called "Slab Echo."
