Just right of the arete there are some cracks leading up the pillar. The rock is more fractured than the nice slab routes to the left but seemed solid enough. Just being at this crag is slightly R rated, everything on the ground is slick, loose, and directly above your car! But the climb itself protects well, assuming the whole pillar doesn't slip off the ledge. The climb is steeper and harder than it looks, but the moves are interesting, and it climbs well. From the top of the pillar, you can step across to the main wall. Clip the last bolt on Aqua Regia and use its anchor to get down.
This is on the free standing pillar just right of the other routes.
SR and anchor draws.

A little steep and awkward....
