This route is all the way to the left side of Wake Up Wall. Start near a wee little tree. The belay is perched on a hanging slab, so it's not a bad idea to build an anchor for the belayer with the big cams you don't need on the climb. Balance up, clip a bolt, then pull through the crux bulge. Then another bulge then some flaring stuff to the two bolt anchor. This seems much easier than an Eldo 5.9 (say Emerald City for example...). Decent climbing though, with options for more close by.


Bring up to a #2 or #3 Camalot. TCUs, nuts.

This route is better than it appears from below. It packs a lot into 70' and has no really easy sections.
