Climb the prominent arete in the middle of the crag. Lower to the right to avoid rope drag.

An airy climb with a steep crux at the 5th bolt. The crux can be done several ways; stepping left or going straight up. Both seem to be about the same difficulty.

The climb is about 80' long. The leader can also belay from a good ledge at the top instead of lowering.

Crux can also be done to the right. Regardless, this is the best sport climb at the rock and is pretty worthwhile.

Fun climb. Mostly 5.9ish up a narrow arrete until a mid-10 thoughtful sequence between the fifth and sixth bolts. Worth the stroll over if you're at the third tier of Avalon.

Probably the only worth-while climb at this crag. I think 10- is a very generous grade. Probably easier if you are taller.
