Description 

A relatively quiet area on Camelback that sees much less traffic than the eastern areas located closer to the parking lot. Feels nice and secluded even though when climbing the routes here you can see into peoples backyard.. They will be lounging in their pool watching you while you bake on the wall while getting eaten by nats.

Getting There 

From the echo trailhead parking lot, follow the trails leading to boulder canyon but continue past the massive 300' headwall, the Yoda huts and the camels ear. Drop down into the canyon and you'll see the the walls at your 10:00. If you see a chuckwalla eating a cordelette you're in the right place.

Another Bolt ladder going up the crumbly, overhanging rock. This one however may be the longest one in Echo Park. On the first pitch I believe I counted 22 bolts total. Its a mix of old sleeve bolts, a few bomber fusions and ten or so rivets. The anchor has two good bolts with permanent lockers on them and two older bolts with tat on them. the slings are not to be trusted... you can increase the fun of this pitch by bringing a hook for some awesome little ledges.second pitch sucks.. don...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
