The second pitch of Get Up Stand Up is a good 5.7+ entry lead. Protected when you might get a bit nervous and spicy but well protected finish... climbing past bolts on the steeper headwall to a semi-hanging station. Near the top of the pitch you are out of sight of the belayer.
first and third pitch are more comfortable for a more experienced climber. One poor lead bolt on pitch 3, but you are using long slings anyway to minimize rope drag on this delicate stemming pitch.
There are a couple projects in the area. All projects are ground up leads. Please respect these or risk backing off your high point on a single bolt or that piece of gear you didn't want to leave.
On the right side of the alcove is a short steep clean dihedral with a bolt on the right face, near the top. You approach by climbing in the corner of the easy low angle slab below. To get off this you would have to continue up Cryin' on the Corner.
The main left facing white corner is White Dream, an established route...about 5.9. All gear and very good line IMO. A #4 friend is nice for the last pitch. You can descend once you summit by moving climbers right and carefully down-climb under a bulge - exposed 3rd class. There you will find rap anchors returning you to your starting point. Maybe you can get down with a single 70. We always had 2 - 50 or 60 meter ropes.
