Mystery protection on Phantom Sprint. Anyone know...

RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>


Echo Tower is the large tower across from the Kingfisher and uphill from Cottontail tower. It is one of the 5 major towers in the Fishers, and has a lot of routes ranging from moderate clean aid, difficult scary free, and utterly heinous aid. It was the first major tower in the Fisher group to go free when Stevie Haston freed Phantom Sprint at 5.12

The summit is a wild exposed ridge with no anchor on the highpoint. It is one of the airiest places in the desert.

Getting There 

Routes are initially approached from the main trail. Depending on which face is being climbed, scramble up the gully between Echo and the Kingfisher or Echo and the Titan.

This route is simply superb. This is an obvious natural line - a rarity in the Fisher Towers. The route has a grand total of two fixed pieces, both of which are on the first pitch, and then the last short bolt ladder on the North Chimney route to gain the summit. The route gets no sun at all, so its best to do in late spring or even summer.Hike up towards Ancient Art and the Kingfisher. After scrambling up a 4th class section, look for a climbers trail that contours around the back of the si...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
