Echo Cove East covers the eastern section of the Echo Cove Corridor, including East Cove (left and right sides) and The Gully. The small area has a handful of quality routes, notably Effigy Too (5.10a/b). Make That Move Or Six Foot Groove (5.10c) and No Mistake Or Big Pancake (5.11a) make my top 10 list of favorite route names in the Park.

Getting There 

Echo Cove East is either approached by walking north through wash from Echo Tee (routes will be on the left), or by heading through Echo Cove proper (past Big Moe). Either way is about the same.

This excellent route lies about 50 feet uphill and right of Effigy Too. Start left and below a large boulder. [Beginning off the boulder and traversing left avoids the first 15+ feet of thin crack]. Up a very thin crack then into a left leaning corner (1st bolt). Continue up until established on face above corner (11a); another bolt protects moves to a horizontal.
