|Echo Cove - East Side
Starting off a boulder to the left of The Real McCoy, step left into a fist crack/offwidth, which is climbed up to a ledge. Climb the arete above the ledge to the top.
Start about ten feet left of The Real McCoy (now much harder than the guidebook rating since holds have broken, BTW) at the base of a fist crack/offwidth.
Gear to purple Camalot. You'll need medium cams and slings or an anchor rope to TR.

Nice combination of edges, slopers, and high steps. I used a #2 and #3 camalot to protect the start.
