It is located in Echo Rock Area which is very easy accessible - just east of Hidden Valley Campground. It offers a good assortment of face and crack climbs. There are many classic routes here and that means it can get crowded here at times, so come early.
Although there is a singular Echo Rock, the entire area is made up of several formations and granite corridors
Take the road just past Hidden Valley Campground to the Echo Rock parking area. The west face of Echo Rock is the huge slab clearly visible from the lot.
