I can not remember topping out without the train, you might want to hang out in the upper dihedral and wait for one to come so you may have the pleasure of doing the upper crux ...properly.

Echo has not yet touched down, but it is still nice to see ice!
Two short flows have formed up the hill from Echo, easy but fun.

Comments: You may link this route with Echo falls by topping out and walking south/ south east about 100 feet where you can hook up with the Cathedral trail.
