Just to confirm what my friend Conor has said, it is a slab climbers dream. The friction is unbelieveable and many of the routes can be done even when damp. Route finding through the overlaps can be fun for the inexperienced. It is northerly facing so it doesnt dry the fastest after rain and doesnt get the sun until around 1400-1500.

This place is every slab climbers dream. Favourite climb:Crooked Chimney HS although the crack before the chimney can be interesting.
