Here's my contribution to the topos. This is the only route I remember and remember may be an overstatement as I did it a long time ago. So if anyone wants me to accurize it let me know where it is off. The route is Revelations 5.10- on the right (east) end of the cliff.
Go along the east end of the cliff until you get to a grungy left arching corner. This is where the relatively clean slabs end. To the left of that look up and you should see a bolt(s). There are two routes here. The one that starts to the left is Energizer (5.10+). The one to the right is Revelations. They share the first belay ledge.

Thanks for the topo Brian. There are four routes on that face. L to R: Energizer, Revelations, an unnamed route just right of Revelations and Captain Hook (the grungy corner). They all appear to be about the same vintage. Your topo looks to me what I would call the right hand route.

It should also be noted that the topo shows two (or more) pitches.

"Your topo looks to me what I would call the right hand route."

CORRECTION: I'm not sure which right hand route you mean? The very right hand route is the 5.5 grungy corner. Revelations, as I did it, is multi-pitch but according to Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing New England" it shares the first pitch belay with Energizer and then finishes up Energizer. Green's line matches my route except he has it as three pitches and I'm pretty sure I did it as two.
