Climbs easy moves to the 3rd bolt. From here climb up and left, encountering the crux almost right away. Continue past small holds and intriguing moves to the top of the wall. Outstanding route, nice movement on good rock, for the area.


Left side of the Pink Wall.


10 bolts & 2 Fixe rings.

Pretty bad description of the route.

Dunno, after putting in a few burns on this route, I'd say that description pretty much nails it. If you want more detail, go climb the thing. Fun route, maybe a little less striking than Pretty in Pink but quite good.

The anchors are closed rap rings, not open shuts.

Anyone else think the last 15 feet of this climb is the crux? I have a feeling (like a lot of routes at Echo) that something broke up at the finish making it harder...unless I missed something?

I agree with SCherry, last part of the route is the redpoint crux and that this route is a 5.12. Holds have broken at the crux. It's harder than Pretty in Pink for me.
