Directions:  Start at the hand crack on the left side of the "flat iron" buttress under the huge Echo Roof.
Description: While most people only do the lower pitches, the upper ones can be a good adventure as well.
    Pitch 1: Jam the crack and climb the slab (runout) to the overlap. Step right to a weakness and mantle onto a ledge. Step right again and climb a groove past a bolt to a two bolt anchor.

    Pitch 2: Traverse left under the roof (not a lot of gear) and belay off trees on the left side of the roof. (5.4)

    Pitch 3: Follow the left-slanting corner to the large tree ledge. Can you find the ring piton? (5.4)

    Pitch 4: Walk right on the ledge and climb a chimney past an old bolt to a cave. (5.5)

    Pitch 5: Wander up and right to a slab and continue up several pitches to the top of the cliff.

Gear: standard rack and 2 ropes
Descent: wal off down the Bryce Path
History:  July 30,1960 - Earle Whipple, Bob Jahn
