Above the sandstone ribbon

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


Longest route on the wall. Start on the right side of a "bridge" between 2 huecos. Climb up to the sandstone ribbon which makes a bulge, which is the crux. Not super hard, but definitely need to read it right to get passed it. Involves a good undercling, an iffy crimp, and some awesome hidden jugs. After that, cruise up and right to a huge hueco/ledge which is very dirty, watch you don't kick too much down on your belayer. Kind of some funky moves getting off the ledge and up to the next bolt, then a few easy moves to the chains. Had a lot of fun on this one.


Sixth route from the left, or first from the right


11 bolts and chains

I felt like this was the hardest route at the crag. Definitely not the steepest but the most technical route, and certainly (I thought) the most sustained route at Roadside. Super fun climb.

Nice route since it's longer with consistent and occasionally thoughtful climbing at the grade--good movement too. Will be great if it cleans up with more ascents.

Had to hang at the Pumpy/bouldery crux. But its well protected. The rest is super fun!
