Echo Lakes

The climbing at Echo Lakes is along a long ridgeline on the northeast side of lower Echo Lake and includes Flagpole Peak. There is both trad and sport climbing here, but very little in the way of top roping (Berkeley Camp is nearby, and offers easy access top roping). There are several hundred routes here, so there is very little in the way of crowding. Most of the routes, if not all receive afternoon sun. Since they face west, they will have melted out before some of the north facing routes at much lower elevations.

Directions - From Meyers head south on 89. You will see a large pullout just past the Big Meadow trailhead parking area on the left side of the road. The trail heads off perpendicularly and then crosses the Rim Trail. After crossing a creek it gets rather steep. The approach takes about 20-30 minutes.
