The cliff has two aspects: one facing east, and one facing southwest; which is convenient to seek out shade or sun as desired.
The rock is generally of high quality basalt, although the cliffs have a few ledges making many of the routes not as sustained as trad routes at The Playground or the Old New Place. Some climbs in this area are among the finest crack climbs in White Rock.
You're unlikely to encounter crowds or other climbers at this area, as compared to more crowded White Rock cliffs.
A list of routes, with descriptions and ratings (but no photos) is found here:
The area is also described in the Rock Climbing: New Mexico and Jemez Rock guidebooks.
The East Face of the Big Enchilada is just to the north of the descent gully; the West face is just south and around the corner.
