rock climb - echo canyon - bear hallow
Echo Canyon offers fun, bolt protected cobble climbing. It is very similar to Maple Canyon conglomerate. Bear Hollow Area (Clint Eastwood Wall and Bear Hallow Wall) includes bolted routes 5.6 and up. The goods: a new beginner-intermediate area has been bolted 1 mile up the road from Bear Hollow. The bad news: trash and graffiti were appalling on my last visit. Our task: Let's spend our first 30 mins of the morning helping to restore this amazing crag. I'll bring extra large trash bags, you bring gloves. I can haul out trash in my truck. And as always, all climbers and belayers need to wear a helmet.
