|Echo Cove - East Side
Begin 10' right of the 3/8" bolt on No Mistake or Big Pancake and climb edges past a discontinuous seam (very small stopper / brass in the seam) to a shallow horizontal crack. Above the horizontal crack, reachy moves on a steep face lead past three bolts to the top.
Orignally free-soloed on the first ascent - the bolts were added later.
Very small stoppers or cams to 1" are needed before reaching three bolts. A two bolt anchor is is present on top.

I remember the crux being just above the climber in the above picture as stepping out of the horizontal in the pic...

Good, interesting climbing, especially if you're under 5'10" or so. Some sharp crimps are a little harsh on the pads, and longish reaches in the lower half make for some insecure sequences. Two cruxy bits stacked on top of each other in the bottom half, gaining the big horizontal and again once your feet are on it gaining the next crimp. Absolutely mind-blowing that this went up as a free solo, Arran must be on the tall side.

The Bartlett guide says Arrin's solo came after toprope rehearsal, but none the less good stuff.
