On the lower right end of the Cowboy Crags area as viewed from the road, this rock features a handful of generally south facing dihedrals and face routes and around on the eastern side, it's namesake routes Oyster Bar 5.11b and Path of the Oyster 5.11c.
Park at the paved parking (not just a turnout but a small lot) a short distance past Ryan Campground. A trail leads from here to the base of Target Rock.

This should eventually deposit you at the Oyster Bar. Maybe 20 minutes from the road.
