Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>


the first route to the right of the little bouldering cave. one of the shorter routes and one of the best to do in the rain. the start is tricky and most people use cheater stones, I dont think it changes the grade. the route is characterized by two big moves off small holds into pockets next to the 3rd and 4th bolts.


first route right of bouldering cave.


5 bolts. top 3 or 4 + anchors usually have hanging draws.

First moves are freaking brutal, one arm with legs under the roof on a shallow 2 finger pocket. Hardest single move on the wall bar none.

Definitely hard start, but if you campus the initial moves it is surprisingly much easier. Nice route for such a shorty.

I agree, it was easier to campus the initial moves. The crux is definitely a long reach/dead point for me to a so so pocket at the fourth bolt. This move is harder than anything on stop that train but I feel that stop that train is slightly harder. There is one 12b move on graffiti whereas the hardest move on stop that train is probably 12a, but it is longer and has multiple cruxes, which I feel merits the 12b grade. Both climbs are great.

Just as an FYI, all biners on this route have been upgraded to steel (Petzl steel Djinns and Trango Steel Wiregates).

The crux is definitely that fourth bolt deadpoint. I feel like you just don't get a chance to rest your right arm at all up to that point, and your power is gone from the big moves earlier.

Good route with mostly consistent difficulty. That dead point mentioned by Tyler can be avoided with a right drop knee on a high hold. Some find it easier to be dynamic some like to static though routes. Just wanted to point out that you have the option on this one.

Didn't find the first moves to be that tough, just get high feet real early. Didn't find the middle dead point to be that cruxy with the dropknee. Thought that the last move was the crux especially when pumped as hell, likely just bad fatigue beta.
