North and west faces

The North Face is actually the first route you will see here, as it faces the road. 3 bolts, the first of which is "up there" but an Alien Hybrid can be placed in a seam before clipping the bolt. We felt that the North Face (rated 5.8 in the book) is actually 5.9

Haf n Haf is a crack & face climb on the NW corner, to the right of the North Face, 5.8, with one bolt protecting the face near the top (mussy hooks at the top). The crux is the entry to the crack.

Re: North and west faces

As you mentioned Brutus, Deb and I concur with that rating. There is another route to the right of it approx. 15' and checks in about the same with the same number of bolts (3). The rock on this side is pretty nice. Dunno why the book gives them only 2-stars. Felt both deserved 3-stars

Slingshot Tower?

The "distinct phalic formation" shown in the title photo now has a route up the north arete: Slingshot Arete, 4 bolts to chains, 5.9, FA February 10 2008 by Brutus, Nurse Ratchet, and Tim Standing. All bolts hand drilled.
