Description:

Located in the center of the south face of Echo Cove rocks, up along the right side of the outside face of a huge flake that leans against the formation. Great bouldery start and finish. Lots of smearing in the middle section.

Descent Options:

Scramble over the top of summit boulder to rap chains of R.M.L., or downclimb the backside via stem chimney to climber's left. There used to be bolted rap anchor atop C. S. Special, but now chopped.

Roofy start move is tough. Fun and well protected up above. We built an anchor, then cleaned it up after also climbing RML.

Bouldery start on to some tricky slab. Rap of is a pain due to no anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Good Route

Really enjoyed this one. Bouldery start to balancy moves to get first bolt. Then just some tricky slab moves the rest of the way.
