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.
DescriptionThis route starts up Pale Rider then breaks right at the third bolt. As with Pale Rider there is no distinct crux, though getting off the ground is probably the most difficult move.
Either clip the third bolt with a long sling or unclip it after clipping the fourth bolt to prevent rope drag. You could skip the third bolt all together, but you would hit the ground if you came off close to the fourth bolt without clipping the third and it's not that the climbing is hard, but the rock is chossy enough to be worried.
Still quite dirty, but once it cleans up it will be an alright route.
