This is a good climb. It has some fun moves and great views. The start of the route is on a sloping ledge with a 20 foot cliff below, but there are some nice cracks to place gear if you want to secure yourself or your pack. Cooling off in the pond after climbing is really nice on a hot summer day.
We also did a slab climb, which was a bit harder, but doesn't seem to be listed. It starts on a prominent bulge between the corner and the Nose, and goes straight up.

The middle slab is listed as either a 5.7 or 5.8 in the old guidebook depending on how far right you are. Both are nearly gearless, and considered TR lines. The one starting on the bulge is Son of Snake, somewhere in the 5.7-8 range, with a hard and always awkward mantle.
The next righthand route, nearly on the nose is called "Discipline" I believe, slightly harder again, and more of an eliminate than anything, though I haven't TR'd it.
