With D. Victor and R. Renteria, one day plane trip from the bay area. Nice peaks, but we ran out of time to tag them all.

Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2015


Class 3-4 up #3 starting low on the W face, traverse to #2 then #1 (I think it was 2 to 1 that had a fun, but optional, traverse on the W side of the ridge where you shuffle your feet along a narrow ledge while hanging onto the ridge top).

Tried 6 but turned around part way up, didn't try 4, and admired 9 but didn't even think about trying it.

Run/scramble from Cathedral Lakes TH up some of the peaks and down via Budd Lake. Bailed from some peaks that looked too sketchy in running shoes. Nice area altogether.

dkangasEcho #4, East Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2012
We did this in two full pitches with a 70 m rope. Found the climbing to be a mix of class 3-5, with some challenging route-finding. Rock quality is not great. We encountered LOTS of loose rock--including a bath-tub size flake near the top that moved when weighted!!--and grunge in the cracks. Plus bushes with sticklers. Top out was a lot of fun along a "sidewalk in the sky". Rather than rappel down, we down-climbed the short class 3 section from the notch between #3 and #4 to the west side. Summit register only recorded 3 visits all of last year!

Very fun day of scrambling on these peaks with SMG. Despite it being August, it was very cold and began to snow lightly on us as we were leaving. Go figure. I think #1,2,and 3 are the best and would recommmend doing them as the finale.

gordonye#9 and #3  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Hakan, Vlad and I went to climb Echo Peaks to celebrate Hakan's completion of CA 14ers. Vlad lead #9 in 1 pitch and struggled with terrible rope drag. There were several airy traverses and the chickenheads were breaking off, making for a spicy climb. When descending we found the hard way that rappelling off the north side could not be done with a single rope. After fighting stuck rope on the first rappel on the south side we finally got off #9 and went to bag #3 and break out the champagne on the summit.

Did all but #9, 4, and I think 6 (the third hardest - definitely doable, but looked a little sketchy from where I was). Still a lot of fun scrambling, some airy ridges - went up #5 (I think) and downclimbed the backside which proved interesting. Could have taken more time but was working on the Cathedral Traverse.

WMLecho wandering  Sucess!


wandered about the ridge finding fun lines, attempting to avoid loose rock, and enjoying an easy afternoon in the hills on Echo Peaks and Echo Ridge. Highly recommended if you have an afternoon to kill and if the crowds are too much to go solo Cathedral

#9 was just a bit much for me to solo, which was discouraging but not unexpected. Trip report

dpatmalloy7 out of 9, great day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2007


With my fiance Sarah, climbed all except for #4 and #6. She led #9 in two pitches, and it took two raps to get down; we removed **really** old slings and replaced with new on each rap. No entries in the register since Bob and Matthew last year. We will have to go back to get those other two another time, #4 looks like we will definitely want a rope again, and #6 was just a little more exposed and difficult than I wanted to downclimb at the end of a long day (which included an hour of rest for me to deal with random indigestion). We need to climb them all...they are depicted on the engagement ring that a jeweler friend designed for us earlier this year!
