I worked this issue with Eric Murdock at the AF, and it looks like the Forest Service picked Devil's Gulch Road as the southern boundary even though all the climbing areas on MP.com were not burned.
It is also known as Seam Rock.

Per SteveF: to reach the parking from the town of Drake, proceed west on CR 43 for a couple minutes to make a right on Storm Mountain Road. At 2.1 miles, make a left at the T-intersection onto Storm Mountain Drive. After about 1.2 miles, stay right onto Cedar Park Drive. Turn right on Homestead Drive after about 1.5 miles. Then make a right on Meadow Drive. There is a small sign saying "Private Drive No Outlet", but I believe this is actually a Forest Service road. Stay right at the Y-intersection after about 0.2 miles. Then make a right onto a small road just past a red roofed house. This road has one small section that looks to be pretty muddy after a rain but is passable with a Subaru Forester when dry. After about 0.3 miles, you'll see a narrow old two track road on the right. Park here and walk, or continue on the two-track road as far as you're comfortable. Toward the end, it gets steep before reaching the ridge leading to the top of Cedar Park Slab. On foot, follow this rocky ridge to the top of the slab to find the rappel rings (105°19'58.308"W 40°28'6.931"N). The rap route takes you to the bottom of Dags in Beanland (105°19'56.511"W 40°28'3.384"N).
Per Dharma Bum: there is now a locked Forest Service gate after Meadow Road and no parking for the above approach.
Cedar Park Slab can be accessed from the top on the north side of the rock to avoid hiking across private property. There is a road sign indicating that Meadow Drive is private (maybe BS?), but it can be used to access parking on Forest Service land (outlined in green).
