Echo Ridge, Cathedral Range, Yosemite high Sierra, California

Echo Ridge is the high point (not named on the topo) in the northwestern part of the Cathedral Range (which includes Mt. Lyell to the southeast). Surrounded by popular Cathedral Peak, Unicorn Peak, Cockscomb, The Matthes Crest and Echo Peaks. This is a quaint group of small peaks with a wealth of good climbs in close proximity to one another and only a couple of miles from hwy. 120 in the Yosemite high country.

Directions to Echo Ridge

From Tioga Pass at the east entrance to Yosemite Nat. Park drive 9 miles west to the Cathedral Lakes trailhead in Tuolumne Meadows. The Cathedral Lakes trail goes to the right. You go straight south along Budd Creek on a good use trail. Go around the right side of Budd Lake and south to the obvious col between Echo Peaks and Echo Ridge. Go left up the class 2 ridge to the summit, 11,168'
