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.

Jupiter's Crack
The narrowing fissure is tough at the overlap. A huge cam helps.

It isn't! Wide and awkward, especially the bold start.

Achilles' Heel
Climb flakes awkwardly to below the roof, then escape right away to the arete and an easy finish.

The powerful direct finish uses a useful flake on the lip - tough!

The crack leads to a tough exit. The skinny can head through the vertical vice into mountain, the rest will be squeezed!

Zeus's Crack
The off-width crack is a bit of a battle, though the bold and naughty might layback it.

Boulder up the technical wall to runners (poor landing) then trend right to finish.

The centre of the wall behind the holly is reachy and all the holds slope horribly.

The roof split by a crack just right (off the topo) is a struggle.
