THE GRAVEL PARKING AREA adjacent to Echo Rock, Echo Cove, and the “Big Hunk” rock climbing community of candy-bar formations, continues further toward Keys Ranch along a northwest-trending dirt road. Echo Cove is a particular favorite with rock climbers.

One eventually reaches a locked gate and parking area at the end of this road, with lavatory facilities, and a foot path leading west toward a climbing area dominated by The Rusty Wall.

Fellow Joshua Tree wander E! and I took the Keys Ranch tour the third day of January, 2015. As you will see from several of the images, there were patches of snow left from a 2″ to 4″ dusting the Park received a few days prior.

The Rusty Wall, which faces north, is shaded in the afternoon.
