Description

Start by climbing a 15ft hand crack to a slab.Clip the bolt then stay to the left of a small overlap and clip a second bolt.Pull the overlap clip the last bolt after that head left for the anchors on Echo.

[Admin.'s NOTE: The following info. was received and is believed correct: "Return to Innocence technically starts on the face just to the right of Echo. The hand crack is a nice alternate start, but not the traditional route" Echo starts with the hand crack. ]

Location

When the trail flatens out below Echo roof this is the first climb to the right.Look for a 4" wide crack.

Protection

3 Bolts and tricams

A-ha -- So this climb actually starts BELOW the hand crack. That makes sense. As you go higher past the hand crack, to try a better start, you end up in 5.8 country.

Getting to the first bolt is balancey anyway-- Then you get clipped in pretty easily to the second bolt, so you can do the crux with protection... and then cruise up to the anchors. Not a bad climb... It's short and pleasant. Oct 15, 2015

The hand/fist crack IS echo. Start on the face to the left of the corner. Move up and right to the bolt. Oct 28, 2013
Bring tricams smaller than red if you don't want to run it out. Oct 28, 2012
