This rock will sit in the sun when it's sunny, but due to the surrounding valley, the chances of that being predictable aren't real good.
This area is on National Forest and BLM land, so you can bolt all you want, and climb all you want.
There are plenty of routes around on mainly colorful granite, so be ready for a variety of downclimb and other climbing / approach challenges.
There also seems to be a fair amount of bouldering on top of Pinecrest peak, though it is mainly unclimbed.
From the top of Herring Dome: 10 - 20 minutes.
From the top of Pinecrest Peak: 1 minute.
There are two approaches:
From the top of Herring Dome, continue up the ridge to the colorful granite above, just below the "summit" of the relatively flat Pinecrest Peak.
From the Pinecrest peak sign, you're there.
