This area has some excellent face climbs that are predominantly well protected, i.e. sport climbing. It stays in the shade for a pretty long time in the morning and can actually be quite chilly up there.
Take the trail as described in Falkenstein's guidebook. Park about 5 miles west of the store. Make sure you don't park in the Galen's Crack area--there is a better pullout/trail a little ways further.
