Description:

Begin in the middle of the narrow orange buttress, 10 feet left of "Welcome to Echo." The route starts off a shelf up and left of the approach trail. Pull up onto the slab on horizontals and pockets. Continue up the slab using pockets and the right arete. At the top of the slab clip the 3rd bolt and move left onto the steep face on knobs and small features. Continue up the face above past two more bolts.

Descent Options:

rappel the route from a 2-ring Fixe anchor.

3 out of 5 stars Bow Wow!

Fun moves up a slab with side pulls on the arete, to a thought provoking sequence around the prow to the steep face on the left. Steep and committing crux moves could help accumulate those frequent flyer miles.
