Echo Canyon: Roadside Crag

Echo Canyon: Roadside Crag



Zero approach but nothing easier than a 5.7 if you have some really small climbers.


Eight routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.10a. There is a three-star 5.9+ that you will definitely enjoy but nothing easier for really small children.

Not highly trafficked.
