There are some high quality routes here, but my favorite part of this area is the bouldering on top of the wall.
Above the east face, look for an overhanging lip traverse requiring heel hooks and monkey moves. Right next to it is a tall golden face with reachy crimp moves. Over on the western side of the summit are some more problems, overhangs and traverses.
A good way to finish off your day!

if you are a trad leader, (ie proper climber) avoid weekends!
I was shocked by the volume of top-ropers on all the classics, punching above their weight, replete with "granite planet" gym tags.
When i finally found "Monkey Paws" was free, (as this was apparently the warm up TR for your Star Wall TR project) i felt like i was indeed at the gym. All the holds polished and caked with chalk... Shame really, must have been awesome 20yrs ago.
A good argument for not having bolted anchors on trad lines.
