Perfect finale to a Cathedral traverse: Unicorn / Althuski / Cockcomb / Echo Ridge / and Five of these Echo Peaks!

Date Climbed: Oct 17, 1996


Did #1 on a solo trek through the backcountry for 4 days at the end of the season- The days were warm and the nights were cold. Amazing country, especially with no else around at this time.

On the way from Echo 2 to Echo 3

My body starts shaking vigorously.

As I stop the shaking abates,

As I make a move forward

It starts again with increased intensity.

A brief vision of a climber

Tumbling down the steep West Face

Is convincing enough:

There will be no more climbing for me today.

Ashamed I retrace my steps,

Turned back by a mere class 3.

Matthew Holliman

Sep 23, 2005, No. 3 - West Face: Very cool climb up steep, exposed flakes. Continued on to Echo Ridge, with absolutely spectacular views of Matthes Crest.

Oct. 22, 2006, No. 5, 7, 8, 9: Climbed with Bob, Sam, and Glenn as an easier day after Cleaver/Blacksmith. Wasn't feeling good (dizzy due to lack of sleep the previous couple of nights), so I bailed on the outing after those peaks.

Didn't have time or the desire to climb them all (especially #9). Just out there to enjoy the afternoon. Watched some slow pokes on Cathedral on Sunday. it appeared there were only 3 parties (at best) on Cathderal that day...a new record!

DebRoute Climbed: A few of them Date Climbed: 10 October 2005  Sucess!


I can't remember what peak is what, but I only hit up three of them due to exhaustion and knobs popping off under my hiking boots. Interesting view of Yosemite Valley from up there eventhough I hated that knifeblade crotch shuffle required to top out on one of those things. Does the wind ever stopped blowing?!

GlennGRoute Climbed: West face Date Climbed: September 25th, 2005  Sucess!


Matthew and I climbed this as our second peak of the day after Tresidder. I liked the slabs coming up the west face, and the final 3rd class sharp edge to the summit of number 3. I would like to go back and get all 9, I didn't do any others as I had very little beta, and we were on our way to Echo Ridge and Cockscomb.

Came back and did #1,#2, #3, #6, #8, #5. Running low on time for the rest of our traverse so we left for Echo RIdge after these. Looks like I'll have to go back again for the remaining ones!

dnafields1995Route Climbed: #1, #2, #3 all via west side. Date Climbed: June 2002 and August 2002, September2003.  Sucess!


Climbed Echo Peaks #1, #2, #3 and #6 with Bob Swanson. I thought they were so cool, that i took some novice climbers up the following August to do #1, #2, and #3. Not every wanted to climb #3. But they all loved the hike up. What a great view of Cathedral and Matthes Crest. Went up one last time with Bob and Jeff. This time #1, #3 and only thought about #4. Jeff's first time camping out over night in the states.

Climbed #1, #2, and #3. Mostly class 3, some route challenges ended up with sections of class 4. No one else on peaks all day - though did hear climbers topping out over on Cathedral Peak.

mpbroRoute Climbed: #5 from the south Date Climbed: 20 September 2003  Sucess!


After a long day of climbing it seemed ridiculous to ascend each and every one of the Echo Peaks. So I just picked a representative one (#5) and climbed it. Nice rock and nice views. I should have done #3, which looked more interesting (and bigger).

Scrambled up a few of the Echos then got out before the charcoal grey thunder clouds opened up on us. Later in the day a flash flood warning for the surrounding areas was issued and a swift water rescue was made in the Tuolumne River. I plan to finish the rest of the Echos on a future trip.

MishaRoute Climbed: North/North East Date Climbed: June 28, 2003


September 30, 2006: Climbed a different route on #9. The crux felt like 5.8. Chickenhead breaking at the crux made it exciting. Two pitches of above average climbing. According to the register, we were the first party on it in 2006. With Etsuko and Maria.

August 21, 2004: After scrambling up #5 and #7, Rich (steeleman), T-Bo and I focused on our primary objective of the day: Southwest Face of #9. Despite the threatening weather and thunderstorms around us, we climbed the route in 3 short pitches. It was Rich's and T-Bo's first multi-pitch climb and a first hanging belay! A stuck rope and our inability to hear each other on the 2nd pitch made it even more interesting. The crux move past the overhang was fun! And the rappel on the other side of the peak was even better!!

June 28, 2003: After scrambling up Wilts Col, davidkiene, kiwifzzz and I climbed up short but sweet Class 3 routes on Echo Peaks #5, 7 and 8. Since main objective of our day was Cockscomb, we decided to 'spare' remaining Echo Peaks for the next trip :)

I climbed 3 out of the 9 Echo Peaks (I think #1, 7 and 8, but I’m not 100% sure) with fellow SPers Kiwifzzz and mlog. No big ones to be bagged, but there are many, many fun, short, class 3 scrambles on these peaklets! We saved a few for next time.
