The shady East Wall (North End) is a large slabby formation with generally good rock and home to a number of popular (and runout) climbs.

Lickety Splits (5.7 R), Zardoz (5.8 R), Guardian Angels (5.10a) and Diamond Dogs (5.10a) are all worth a visit.

Getting There 

Head right from the parking area following a well-marked trail, pass the East Face, and then as you pass through some brush you're there.

Climb up to the roof (TCU can be placed here), then skirt the roof and head up the scooped face above past one bolt to the bolted anchor. NOTE! THIS ROUTE IS QUITE RUNOUT!
