Description 

This warm place on a chilly afternoon provides delicate climbing up orange rock.

Althought the routes here are bolted they are not sport climbs and have a very runout feel to them. The climbing is characterised by steep smearing with the occasional small flakes. Composure is a requirement.

Descent: Facing the rock, walk down slabs to the left to a final steep 15 foot section which can either be down-climbed or, if composed, walked off.

Getting There 

Park at Echo Rock Parking Lot and walk under the EBGBs Boulder and around the right-hand side of Echo Rock past TS Special. Follow the trail across open desert heading towards the SW Face of Little Hunk, just before reaching this face cut to the right and scramble through bushes and over boulders to rach the base of the wall (faint trail).

Approaching Little Hunk's southwest face from the Echo Rock Area one will notice a large flake leaning against the main face, which is where this route is located. Start off a boulder near the left arete of the flake and climb past two bolts, traverse right midway, and finish up past two more bolts and a bit of a runout to the top. Descend by rapping off anchors on a ledge atop the route. Please note - A 50 meter rope just makes it down from anchors atop a ledge. While the rock isn't the best J...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
