This is a great place to climb hard on cold winter days. The southern exposure can make the crag nice and warm as long as the sun is out. It also is nice on a summer morning, since it stays in the shade for a while. The only real issue here is the seepage which can shut down many routes in the spring.
Classics include Heaven (5.11a), Journey to a Mushroom Planet (5.13a), and Parallel Universe (5.14a) and a host of other awesome hard routes.
Some interesting link ups:
Freezer Burn (5.13c)
Starts on The Boogieman and traverses right, under the roof, to finish all the way over on Journey to a Mushroom Planet. I've also seen this called Bird Incubator
No Shit (5.13b/c)
Starts on The Boogieman and finish up Parallel Universe
Steady Slobbin' (5.14b)
Starts up Parallel Universe and finishes up The Boogieman's arete.
All Day Slacker (5.14b)
Start up Parallel Universe and traverse to Journey to a Mushroom Planet's anchor after the 4th bolt.
Alternatively, continue traversing the hillside at the lower level on the trail that goes under Monsters towards the Black Jack boulders. When you reach the first boulder grouping you are right below Monsters ( look for a highball arete). Scramble up through the boulders 100 feet to the crag.
