Easy climbing up extremely loose rock, even for Echo Cliffs. If you love your belayer you'll skip this one. Brings you up to the double anchors, Righteous Babe or Head Wound will get you to the same place, belayer alive.

I can't be definitive about the length. I know a 60 meter gets you down with room to spare. Can't speak to a 50m, so I called it at 90 feet per pitch.


Start in the rock pile 20 feet right of the waterstreak where Righteous Babe starts.


9 bolts for the leader, SWAT uniform and shield for the belayer

Climbed this on a very hot day, as it was one of the few routes where the belay was in the shade. Dirty, yes, but not terrible. We had two first-time climbers with us and they only knocked down a few pebbles.

This one was pretty dirty, even for echo. Helmet for belayer.
