Dinosaur Rock has virtually all trad style routes. The north face (all day shade) has several good (not great) routes. Negasaurus (5.9) has a bouldery start (the crux) and easier cracks above. Gorgasaurus (5.7) is worth doing, and has a height dependant start. Goolabunga (5.10b) is the best of the lot. It is good steep slab climbing and somewhat continuous. The rock is very good but a bit grainy at the top. The east face routes are sunny but are not the best. There is a reason they named one "Too Loose to Trek!"
Out past the Iron Door Cave....see guidebook.
