There are many other areas in the monument with climbs that might be best categorized as "other areas." These include Airport Tower, Crack of Noon Tower, Dirty Old Man Tower, Roadside Crags, Devil's Canyon, Fruita Canyon, Wedding Canyon (though you have a couple routes from this area already - Fast Draw, Medicine Man), Hueco Buttress, Super Crack Buttress, and Terra Tower.
