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.
DescriptionSkinny Witch has better more intact cobbles, and though still a dirty girl for the moment, holds promise for future parties tasting her witches brew. You really feel like you are on top of a tower on this one, as indeed you are! If her dirty nature is intimidating, silver jug handles (A0) are in ready abundance.
Just up hill and to the east about 35m from Wicked Witch, you will find the skinny one.
Pitch #1: Climb up the monster holds past frequent dirty indiscretions to some puzzling final moves to the three bolt belay. 5.9, 13m.
Well protected to the dizzying heights, good fun for all.
