Echo Tower

Echo Tower is located in the Fisher Towers along the cliffs on the east side of Professor Valley, which is about ten miles northeast of Moab. Echo is situated on the same original fin as Cottontail Tower and separated by only a few yards. It is visible from Highway 128, with a better view from the Fisher Towers picnic area. It's considered one of the more difficult of the Fisher Towers to climb. It's made of hard Cutler sandstone deposited during the Permian period. It doesn't fracture into cracks like other sandstone. The most popular climbing route is the Phantom Spirit ( IV 5.9 C3). 

Refer to "Desert Rock III: Moab to Colorado National Monument" by Eric Bjornstad for information on climbing routes. Approach via the Fisher Towers Trail.

Prominence: 420 feet. 

The Fisher Towers along with Fisher Valley were named for a miner who lived and worked in the area in the 1880's.
