P1 has 5 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor P2 has 9 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor
Babe Ruth ascents the left wall of the gulley 30 feet left (west) of Golden Years. Climb up the black and gold water streak on positive edges and pockets past 5 bolts to an anchor in the alcove below the overhang. The 2nd pitch moves slightly left and ascends the steep bulge left of the overhang on small incuts and edges, passing 9 bolts on featured orange rock with numerous pockets and two steep bulges to the P2-ring anchor.
Rappel the route in 2 rappels from 2-ring anchors with a 60 meter rope.

Fun and interesting climbing on positive edges and pockets. The steep bulge at the start of the 2nd pitch gets your attention, but is well protected. Nice exposure, good featured rock, although still a loose, but then all new Echo Cliffs routes are. P1 seems 5.7 and P2 a 5.9
