Restrain This

5.11b, Sport, 80 ft,  Avg: 2.9 from 47 votes
FA: Jack Marshall, 1995
California > Los Angeles Basin > Santa Monica Mo… > Echo Cliffs > Pink Wall


Large edges and pockets lead up and right through steep rock for 3 bolts to the crux which features smaller holds and may require some creative footwork. Once past the crux the angle eases and the holds become better - if you can stay on your feet it should be in the bag.

The steep climbing and fun moves on this route make it a recommended 5.11 route at Echo.


This is the 3rd bolt line from the left and shares the first two bolts with the classic Split Decision (5.11d) before diverging right.


8 bolts, chain anchors

[Hide Comment] The sustained crux makes this a fun and pumpy one. Solid for the grade. Dec 11, 2012

[Hide Comment] Really fun route. If anything the crux was more about trusting the moves and gunning for the next bolt! Jun 17, 2016

[Hide Comment] This one felt burly, but I was pretty worked by the time I got on it. Good fun. Apr 21, 2019
