Crux is the last move before anchors (and the moves above the anchors). Smooth crimps, then over a bulge, a few more moves to the top. Crack at the left is probably off-route, and far from bolts anyway. The last bolt is right below the anchors, skip on lead and set up a TR through it if you want.
Seismic Wall itself is across a creek (usually dry) from the main path/parking lot. Pick up "Austin Rock" (O'Grady) for nice diagrams of all Seismic routes. This route is near the left end of the wall, directly to the right of a large tree. Look for the 2 sets of anchors right next to each other ("Hoover Head" is the left route, with the bolts). Sport lead and then clean/rap down.
3 bolts, 2 top anchors with chains (2 anchors very closeby for "Hoovering" TR)

This is the less than vertical route one to the left of Torpedoes Away (giant hole at the bottom)
