Ther is a climb NW of Beginners Luck and NW of Simple Man that looks like a nice flake to face climb, I would recommend checking it out before climbing the flake is HOLLOW!!! through the exploring phase I've seen solid looking holds brake and this is ready to brake...I'd prefer to leave it natural looking, although it could prob hold a climb, but its only a matter of time....
