The crags off seedhouse road sound like a good bet. Close to some classic mtb trails (southfork loop, scotts run) and with crags containing routes you are looking for. Try Seedhouse rocks or cougar rocks, both not listed in a guidebook but with some information here. Steel nuts in box canyon is ok and close to road. There is also good free camping in the area.

If you are camping up near rabbit ears pass ('The Divide' MTB ride) you could try muddy creek or other rose domes.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
