Description

One of the best routes at Echo. Best done in two short pitches. First pitch climbs 5.5ish cracks to a tree ledge (tree with rap station). The next pitch is what you came for. 5.6 moves off the ledge gains a couple bolts on a smooth steep slab. Hard 5.10 moves up the steep face brings you to a crack, and the crux roof. Protect as much as you want, then power through the roof (awesome 10b) to easier climbing and a 2 bolt anchor with a beautiful view.

Location

About 40' right of the prominent arete.

From the tree sling (the top of P1 for Ten Years Later, Bucked-Toothed Chicken Splitter, and the 12b) this route goes straight up the slab (3 bolts) to the obvious roof crack. Short route with two 5.10 cruxes: the slab crux at 2nd/3rd bolt, and pulling the roof (great placements here). Oct 4, 2016

Fun stuff. The roof is quite hard. Not sure the bolted slab section is 5.10 but definitely 5.9. Off the ledge I would not call it 5.6R. More like, make a 5.2 step or two with no pro, until you can get to the bolt on the slab. Aug 3, 2017
