Someone will inevitably be pissed off for me sharing the local secret. I see it differently though: the more the merrier!


I also think the impact of climber on the area may actually improve it. Most of the locals who swim or party on the shore have little respect; leaving their trash and spray paint behind. If we (climbers as group) can take out our own trash and some of somebody else's we can make this playground what it should be:
Deep Water Solo Paradise!

Looks nice if short. Any overhung parts other than the traverse?

I was a little nervous when a few of the climbers started up some easier terrain - had visions of them hitting every rock on the way down!

The highest "highballs" top out around 70ft. I don't think I've gone more than about 50, though. There are some overhanging problems but on average I'd say most of them are vertical or slightly less than.

Sounds like a good way to get hurt.

there definitely is risk involved; you should carefully choose your routes, & scout your landing zones. That said-I'm going on 5yrs DWS at ECC with out seeing any one get hurt.
