Description 

This is the big face with a prominent right-facing corner.

The longest climbs in The Echo area are on this Wall. "Kangaroo" and "Jam Session" are probably the best climbs on this face.

The views from the summit are awesome!

Getting There 

From just past Mid Dome, hike uphill to the cliff.
To descend, follow the southeast ridge until it is easy to head down toward the lake.

Climbing Season

For the Echo Lakes area.
