To the right the crag continues as a collection of short buttresses and walls with a prominent tower capped by an overhang taken by Achilles' Heel/Laze. There is little here that is outstanding, but this is a good place to escape the crowds and most of the rock is superb. There are some interesting wide cracks scattered about the place if you like that kind of thing. Guidebook page 218.
