'Snooker' is very short, if you can do it all. It is at the right of the main arete, starting from a ground boulder. It is a pocket problem on slippery slab-type rock, hand-size and two- or three-finger size pits as the main features for grip or feet. There is then a standing ledge, and 5.5 above to top. A small tree does lean against the rim, and it's getting worse.

The wall to the right can be rigged for top-rope in various places, very long slings and gear or looping horns, grading from 5.8 to 5.7 to the right. Farther to the right is the gully short-cut to the anchors, the rim path to the right to The Beach area, or up to Upper Ledge Springs Trail to leave.

Just around the corner from 8 and 9 Ball. The short slabby face with some shallow pockets. If I recall correctly, it's split by a horizontal in the middle. I remember the moves being OK and lead it placing gear in the horizontal in the middle of the face.
