BETA PHOTO: Just some places I went up this season.
Tier A is...
Mal described it well enough. It's an ever changing area as the season progresses, getting fatter and more expansive. So, it's more of an area than a named route. More pillars form as the season allows, so it's quite different each time you go back.
What's good? It's not as crowded as routes to the right... a good place to kill some time when the other routes are clogged up. Short pillars and curtains form quite left in a good years.
So, this is uncrowded short pillars and slabs.
You can see ramps and pillars left of Scottish Gully. Head over there and pick a line. The routes keep appearing further left as the season progresses on the lower tiers and right on the upper tier. Traverse over to the top tier and climb as many pillars as you wish.
Rap down off anchors/trees.
Screws. There are currently 3 or 4 anchors on various trees.

This area is referenced as "Traffic Avoidance" in the guidebook. With the abundant water supply;) last season, this place formed up very well.
