Right in the middle of the wall, at its most accessible point (not that any of it is in any way inaccessible, but ...), there is a prominent Y-shaped crack formation. Solar Technology and Men With Cow's Heads (5.5) both start at the same location, but Solar Technology takes the left slanting crack, while Men With Cow's Heads goes more or less straight up the right-hand crack.
Easy but fun. A good beginner TR or lead.
Standard rack to hand size. Long slings may come in handy for setting an anchor on top.

For my own part, I found this route to be really nice at it's grade.

Another great JT moderate! This and Cow's Heads made the weekend for me. And there are plenty of other nice lines close by.

Two fun routes. but this area is popular. Would suggest other routes n Atlantis that Vogel highlights in the new guidebook. Also, you may want to consider getting there early as it does get congested as the day goes on. Not unrealistic to knock out six routes as the walk down is primo!

I would definitely advise taking some slings to the top for extending your anchor. Rope drag can be really bad... I also recommend an oppositional piece at the top for your anchor due to the leftward angle of the climb. Fun climb to lead.
