|There is one more route between Stabbing the Cat and Shallow Hal. Four bolts. 5.9. This is another fun one. Really fun wall with excellent rock, belay stances and scenery.|

Note that the anchors for each of these climbs consist of a pair of bolt hangers, most of which are located quite a ways back from the top of the route. To descend, you either have to top out and walk off (easy 2-minute scramble back to the base), or hang a cordelette or a few slings from the bolts and grab your anchor gear later. This crag would be a lot more user friendly if it was equipped with proper sport anchors, but it does offer a handful of fun moderate sport climbs in a beautiful setting. The trad routes are short and pretty lame. Beware of loose rock on a few of the routes, including Stabbing... and Dude....
BTW, I think the previous comment is mistaken about the new 5.9. There's no other route in between Hal and Stabbing the Cat.
