2 good trad routes: The Far Side and Portal offer slab, crack and slight overhang.

Both can be toproped by walking left and circling up and around the peak from the back side to a large ledge where you can set up a trad anchor over both climbs. I used small and med. cams, Tricams and #5 and 6 Hexcentrics. Use slings or anchor rope to extend 7-8' over ledge.

Getting There 

Routes are directly behind and right of campsite #8 off the group camp road, and offer good shade most of the day.
