At the overlap on Return to Innocence
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. ]
When the trail flatens out below Echo roof this is the first climb to the right.Look for a 4" wide crack.

Bring tricams smaller than red if you don't want to run it out.

The hand/fist crack IS echo. Start on the face to the left of the corner. Move up and right to the bolt.

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.
