4 out of 5 stars Good times

Favorite test site route. Different moves...power laybacking for the 1st half of the route. Powerful 10a could make it feel like a 10b for some and leave you gassed at top. Route was not chossy. BUT...at some point, some of the larger pieces along the edge may break. Some moved more than I liked. Not today, not this year, but at some point they might. Be cautious. First bolt is kinda high and a little more awkward to reach than it should be given how high it is and the choss factor = PG13.

2 out of 5 stars nice lieback if nothing breaks off

Decent route with a lieback style the first 2/3 of the way. The top can be a little puzzling for some. PG only if you miss the first clip.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Different from the typical Echo Cliff climbs, at least until the last few moves off the ledge. Nice.

3 out of 5 stars unique for Echo

due to all the laybacking, which is fun and gives it a trad feel. Not nearly as loose (anymore?) as previous comments suggest. Fun.
