The larger bit of rock on the left, we are now calling The Knoll. I still have to check it out on rappel, but from the base it looks to have some good potential. It looked to be at least a full rope length tall at the highest point. The rock to the north (right) would have routes on it if it was at Cathedral, but didn't look worthy considering the hike and what else was around. I think the Knoll is best approached from above, dropping down along its southern edge.
Yes, I think the picture I posted was of that smaller righthand cliff and I concur it was licheny and not worth the effort given what else is around. I passed underneath the Knoll but didn't get great looks at. If I remember correctly it did look fairly blocky.

I rapped in to the Knoll to check it more closely this past weekend and unfortunately it was disappointing. It has some good sections, but also a lot more rotten rock than I was expecting. It kind of reminded me of a lower angled South Buttress of Whitehorse, only without the good routes or exposure. In other words, it is a crag for way, way on the back burner or perhaps for those who like to go ground up and hand drill.. My disappointment was more than made up for by what I found nearby though, so the day was well spent.
