"Harvey" is located between "Golden Years" & "The Serpent." P1 - ascends the blocky, cobbled buttress above the apron of rock right of "Golden Years" to a headwall. Climb the headwall past a low angle groove. Climb the upper buttress on fun pockets past a total of 7 bolts. P2 - Surmount an initial bulge to gain the ever steepening orange face. Climb the orange face past 10 bolts on fun, well protected positive edges and pockets to the anchors.

Descent Options:

Rappell the route from 2-ring Fixe anchors on P1 & P2, with a 60 meter rope.

4 out of 5 stars Who's Harvey?

Fun route....much cleaner than Babe Ruth which has too much stuff coming off of it. 2nd pitch was pretty clean.

3 out of 5 stars Cool New Route in Cool Temps

The temps at Echo Cliffs in early October have been wonderful. We have climbed this route several times since it was put up and everyone seems to like the line and the positive, well protected moves. The rock on the 2nd pitch is excellent with numerous incut positive edges and unique pockets. The rock on the 1st pitch is typical of Echo Cliffs, but has been thoroughly cleaned and should clean up nicely with more ascents.
