Climber on the Middle Tier, Frustration Creek
This area's routes are all on the west wall and feature a handful of long moderate (5.9-5.10) routes. Be careful when crossing the creek as it can be very slippery.
From the lower falls area hike back into the canyon to the water fall (may be flowing may not) scramble up the small scree pile on the left side of the falls there is a easy 5th class climb, careful though the rock tends to be dirty and is polished from years of water running down it. Up at the top there are 2 bolts with rappel rings so you can loop a rope through and throw it down or rappel off when you are headed home.
