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.
DescriptionExcellent cobble climbing for the area, and reminds one of Maple.
Pitch #1: A cruxy, but well protected start climbs past holes, pockets, and solid protruding cobbles passing a smooth upper band to a three bolt belay. 5.9, 15-17m.
LocationThis is actually in a different canyon, which is located in a north south running canyon just west of the dry wall. I am sure that other climbers have named this west facing wall, but it is unknown to me. Other unknown routes have been established here on the steeper and longer and harder right side of the wall.
The parking is just past some shrubbery about 75m north of the frontage road and both it and the climbing offers some seclusion...more so than Dry Wall. From the parking and camping fire pit, walk 1 minute up the short west facing hillside to a blackish water streak of the left wall, it is the only route on the wall (until now) with glue in bolts.
The exact location and GPS for the route is 41° 0'6.16"N, 111°23'31.73"W
