Just to the right of Mike's Books. Head up the direct start of Mike's Books and then traverse out on the face climbing just between Mike's Books and the Water Chute. The first pitch is totally unprotected and X if you lead it. The first pitch can be top roped off the Mike's Books rap anchors. The second pitch heads, again, to the right of Mike's Books and past two bolts then joins the top of Mike's Books sharing the last bolt before the anchors.

Actually, the route name is Elijah's Coming, named to commemorate the upcoming birth of my partner Bruce's son Elijah.
The second pitch was originally led with no bolts (5.8 X). The 2 bolts were added later by my partner Bruce with my permission, to make for a fun and safe pitch.
When I led the first pitch I placed a piece high in the Mike's Books crack (5.10b R).
