Description 

Located up the valley to the right of the main wall – best approached by crossing the steam as for approaching The Middle East, then crossing back to the west below the east face. Although the routes are all packed in there is some excellent climbing here in a nice secluded setting.

Featured Route For Big Butte - East Face

East of Echo 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Washington : Okanogan : ... : Big Butte - East Face
EAST OF ECHO 5.9 * 100'’ M (7b) Start low and 5'’ right of the small right facing corner, keep right of the corner to climb the initial overhang and the easier middle section. A few small to large cams or nuts are needed. Cold shuts on the top lip. Interesting, varied climbing on good rock, but a bit inconsistent and contrived (easy to avoid strenuous start and higher crux by going left)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
