Description

Full traverse of the Echo Rock cliff band. Starting below Cow Hoof and working downstream. The guys who did this first in the 40s/50s were beasts.

The 50m rope works better, as the pitchs need to be short to allow for the leader and belayer to communicate. The area has big alcoves and voices carry off quite a bit. So you try to be in eye sight of each other.

Location

Farthest downstream crag at Great Falls.

See photos for beta.
