Wasp's Up, Doc?

Named for the wasp nest found on the first ascent, luckily the namesake work of insect architecture was gong when we visited.
A 5.7 or so move off the ground, then follow slightly easier moves up a cracks - really several natural lines will all take you to the anchors on top.
If you follow the first ascenders' line straight up from the final ledge to the anchor, you may make a 5.8ish move after clipping a bolt before the crux. This seemed a bit blocked by manzanita when we were there. I preferred either following the left-hand crack with trad pro, or following the right until blocked by the red bush, and traversing back left on naturals; both of these options were easier than 5.8 in my opinion.
Inviting looking crack on the left side of the southeast face of the Goblet Wall.
Standard rack, you'll use a handful of trad placements on this well-protected short route. One bolt is a couple of feet below the bolted rap anchor.
