The wall on the West side of the main canyon is actually part of a big free standing boulder/tower. On the back side of this boulder are a handful of overhung 5.10 - 5.11 routes and a few easier problems.

Getting There 

Head down the stairs on the trail from the parking lot and take a left at the fork. Head into the main canyon, but after you pass a boulder and before you enter the canyon take a right. The climbs can be found on along the wall next to you.

To set up your top rope: head to the back of the main canyon. Squeeze through the slot and head into the narrow canyon to your right. Scramble your way up to the top and you're there.
