Jam up a vertical crack to the right of Unnamed (5.5) then climb many stacked blocks to the base of the roof. Then pull through the roof (bolt) and good jugs on the left, then make moves up to a horizontal and mantel the lip.
This is apparently on of the best roof problems at echo, I thought it was really fun including the moderate start


10 feet right of Pappy's pearl


Standard rack. There is one bolt in the roof. I traversed left and lowered off the anchors for pappy's pearl and unnamed.

There is also an entry for Ed's Weed be Gone in the every square inch wall section...I think the shield wall is the correct location for the route. Having two entries is redundant though, moderator?

The bolt anchor shared by this and other routes in the area looks pretty bad. Deep pitting in the steel that you can see and one side half buried by moss. I had gear in just below so I lowered and it held, my second walked off after cleaning. I said it was his choice, just saying.
