Start up the dihedral of the first pitch to Posieden Adventure until you can clip the first bolt. Then move out onto the face and follow good positive (mostly) edges to the two bolt belay. The crux comes around the last bolt.

do you need gear for the dihedral, or is it completely bolted?

Hey Peter, not sure if you're still looking (or if you already climbed this!) but you don't need gear for echoes proper. It's "sportily" bolted however echoes proper doesn't go to the top of the cliff, it stops at the bottom of poseidon adventure/echoes extension. You would indeed need gear for PA but not for EE. Hope that makes sense.

I was wondering. When it says start in the dihedral. Does that mean start at the belay ledge on PA or is it much lower. Because I remember standing on the belay ledge on PA and seeing a 2 bolt anchor. I am confused

the proper start is at the PA belay. if you wanted, you could easily use some runners and link the first pitch of PA (the short finger and hand crack) with echoes.
