Access Issue: Echo Cliffs - Grotto and Lookout closed Details


An excellent power endurance route that starts off the ledge on the left side off the White Wall. This one builds on you and the last move may prove to be the crux. From the ledge start up the steep wall making long moves right away up passing good sized holds for the most part to a sloping hueco, then more long moves to a final big toss off some crimps to the finishing flat jug.


Around the corner to the right (east) of the Java Wall.


5 bolts to 2 open shuts. There are 2 extension above, the left one is The Hunger 12d, right is Legacy 14a.

Some of the better rock at Echo, in my opinion. Jan 13, 2013

Does anyone know anything about the extension to this route called "Legacy" and listed as 14a? (project) in the Anderson book? Heard a rumor it was sent?

Thanks in advance! Nov 29, 2015
Yes leithwj, it was fa'd about 3 yrs ago by a dude named Jeremy Rae. He said it might clock in around 5.13+. It has since broken but still goes. It's super sick and is probably realistically 5.14- Mar 15, 2016

The current description doesn't do the route any justice at all. This is a phenomenal route, with super enjoyable holds, moves and sequences. While probably a bit soft for the grade, it's certainly a classic and one of the better 5.12 routes I've had the pleasure of climbing. Mar 26, 2016
