All the routes here have a crux boulder start, but become a walk in the park scramble after three or so moves. Fun little routes to get on if the park is crowded.

The photo is of Erica Lineberry, featured on the cover of Jeff Dillon's revised climbing guide. She is about as short as will be able to make a start for '9-Ball', and at that needs superb footwork of the boulder type and ability to make a fully horizontal lie-back one-arm lockoff and pull-up. The area at the top of the photo is not so easy for everyone as George says; and there is an overhang at the top if you get too bored but have to finish to the anchors. Going farther left for '10-Ball', especially with the start, is another source of more challenge.
