Approach: hike up the trail to the top and either find the bolted rap station( 2 ropes} or hike down either side. Mostly the routes are in the 5.7 - 5.10 range. Go for it.

Locate a set of anchors straight off the summit, down maybe twenty feet left of a rotten gully as you face out.
This is Paul Cormiers route Suzy Q (5.8 caliente.) Climbers right of that is Chuck Woodmans 5.8 when the dog bites. The arete right of that is the old route Skyline Promenade (5.9 mui caliente) with the Perez route right of that.
Explore a bit there's a lot more

Thanks! Were these ever documented anywhere or is it just word of mouth?  Nonetheless, thanks for the intro. :)
