Description:

Begin in a left facing corner with bolts on the left wall. Continue up until you hit the large flake system. Undercling, lieback, and jam the flake all the way to the anchors. A fun route, but sometimes smelly due to bat/bird dung!

3 out of 5 stars This is bolted? Really?

C'mon people. This is a crack, why are there bolts? It would take perfect gear from the ground to the anchors!

It's only 5.10 if you don't crack climb. The hand jams are all solid and with good crack technique it's more of a 5.8

I imagine whoever rated it laybacked the whole thing.

4 out of 5 stars Guillotine

Really fun route. An echo cliffs classic. Very easy but a bit tiring if you mess around too long enjoying the beautiful, juggy undercling holds.

Solid bolts, obvious moves, safe falls. Good beginner lead.

3 out of 5 stars Straightforward Route

I think 10a might be a more fair rating, especially due to the extremely straightforward nature of the route. Good way to set up a TR on the better, harder route to the left.

4 out of 5 stars Classic

Don't remember when I first did this climb, but I always end up climbing it when I go to Echo. Great way to warm up for some of the harder climbs which surround this one.
