The rock is volcanic tuff and really good quality. You'll find the typical pockets, but there are also slots and the odd crack. A few of the problems are a little crunchy, but they are cleaning up as more people discover the area.
There is a good selection of problems covering all grades, however if you are climbing in the V5-V9 range you are spoilt for choice.
A good place to start is the Warm Up Area.
Given the altitude this is a spring to late fall climbing venue. All the boulders are easily accessed and none are more than 10 minutes easy walk from the parking area.
Head west and at the first intersection (after .1 mile) head straight on. After another .1 of a mile take the right fork and head up the dirt road towards the Harley North firewood area.
Follow the road as it climbs steadily for 1.1 miles. You will come to an obvious parking area. The road continues rightwards towards June Lake, but you will head straight on following a narrower trail.
