Slabs at the bottom all the way up to the big headwall (dubbed 'The Great Corner') at the top. Many good climbs all throughout this area, generally very clean and well-traveled. From easy slab to difficult aid, you can have it here.

Getting There 

After passing the house-sized boulder on your way in, continue up the climbers path that trends right along the base of the cliffs. Within ~5 minutes you will come to a large (relatively) flat area. Look up and you will be directly under the Great Corner.

Fire up to the pin (I would back it up) and then from there it's a small wire placement or two till you hit the bolt. The guide book says there are two pins but the second one is no longer there so you have to place gear in the crux section in order to reach the bolt.
