There appears to be several established lines on the Nose, however at this time I don't know enough to describe well enough where they start, the line they take, or what they could be rated. I'm also not entirely sure where all of the anchors are located for climbs on the Nose. If you go straight out and look over the edge you can see a cluster of 3 anchors directly underneath about 25 feet down. I believe the intention is to 5th class scramble out from these anchors when you're done with the climb as none of them have rap rings. There are lots of pricker bushes at the bottom of the cliff implying that not many folks venture here. But if you do venture here you will find a stray bolt here and there showing lines and some possible trad lines.

If you have information about climbs here, Please post them up

Getting There 

If you take the trail to the end you will come out on a rocky face a top Pickens Nose. Access to the bottom of the cliff is either by going down at Cameron's Wall and turning left or by going down the gully at the Top Rope Wall and turning right.
