This route if located at the top of the trail, on the face just left of "Edge of Time". You can scramble to the top of this wall by continuing to the top of the trail, turning right and then going in between the two [obvious] walls, scramble up to your right to get on top of the wall. This description seems vague, but when you are there, it is pretty obvious, sorry.
This route climbs just left of Edge of Time as indicated and is decent climbing on top rope, not suggested to be lead, unless it is retrobolted.
Anchor on top for top roping - old anchor with 3 old sleeved and 2 new - If leading on natural gear - good luck!
Eds. apparently this pitch has been retrobolted.

Led this the other day thinking it was the stiffest 5.7 I had been on in a while. Turns out it is 5.9. Note to self, bring my guidebook next time, but it was an exciting lead and fun.

If you use the tree, it is much easier, maybe 5.7 to 5.8. I did think the crux (between bolt one and two) was harder than a 5.9-. I was burned out, last climb of the day, but it felt like a two move 5.10a at the crux. The route was awesome!!!! Thanks, Lisa G. and Lance T., for climbing with me.

Not sure if East of Eden has been bolted or if there's a new route further left. Nice route, and well worth climbing. The bolted line is left of Lost Time. (Lost Time is correctly described as being about 10 ft left of Edge of Time.) The bolted line is about another 40 ft further left and is well bolted.

After a huge guided school group departed, this route was in the shade. I found excellent face climbing protected by six bolts and and good placements (#0.5 and #1 Camalots) in a horizontal above the second bolt.

The info on this route is confusing on here, so I thought I could clarify.... I went up to Jurassic Park a few days ago.... East of Eden is directly to the left of Lost Time, and it has brand new bolts on it - enough that you do not need any Trad gear for the climb. I felt that it was a moderate 5.9 with hard to find, but it has good feet and slopey hand holds. It was a good warm up for the sketchy, run out Edge of Time.
