The Sheridan farm has a handful of small cliffs that host a couple of high quality, full-sized pitches of technical climbing as opposed to the pocket pulling at surrounding crags. There are a few sport routes here as well, but most of the good ones require a bit more technique than power and the bolts will be spaced more on easier sections of rock. There are still some lines here that have not been retro-bolted; have a good look before you go up and maybe take a couple hangers just in case. The rock here climbs more like the fully-welded ignimbrite, however the rock quality isn’t near as strong. There are still some patches of choss, most likely because there isn’t a whole lot of traffic coming through here. Nothing terrible, there’s plenty of good rock, just climb smart – as you always should regardless of rock quality.
