Embark on a tick-filled adventure of reaching the "Squeeze My Lemon" anchors via the easiest means possible. Enjoy the dirt in your rock shoes and relish every moment of every bush wack encounter.
Of course, the purpose of this climb is as an alternate means of reaching anchors for top-roping at the Lizard Head Wall. If you don't suck, then there's no reason to use this route.
This route shares its start with Blue Collar Crack, leaving that route to stay in the tick-filled gully until reaching the anchor of Squeeze My Lemon. It is not practical to rapel down the same way you came up. Plan accordingly so that you can retrieve your gear.
Whatever you bring, be aware that it will probably catch on all the bushes you have to wack through. I recall girth-hitching a few of the trees/bushes to help keep me calm.

I too applaud your humility. But isn't there a walkup on the back side?

I recall having a look-see around the right-side of the head-wall. It's a bit of a scramble to get up and around to see the back-side of the head-wall. I'll bet there's another easy route to the top anchors of "Squeeze My Lemon", but it's still 5th class, I believe.

Yep, there's a way to the SML anchors form the East. It involves going up the loose slope above that beautiful slab with the old anchor and traversing on increasingly narrow ledges to a move that will make you wish for your climbing shoes.
