Looking for some suggestions for winter crags in LCC and American Fork. Easy top access would be sweet for some rope solo but all recommendations are appreciated!

So far I have checked out Bongeater Buttress and Berner Butress and those seem promising.

 Excuse the ignorance this next question brings - is limestone OK to climb in winter temps/season? And if so what are the conditions to avoid? 
Thanks!

Not much top access in AF. But you could stick clip up stuff. Off the top of my head the spots are
Bill board
Escape
Hard rock
White wave (afternoon).

But be aware after precip the pockets will get seepy. So be aware of that.

If anything breaks and the route doesn't go anymore just glue it back the way you found it ;)

I was up in the Green A gully today. The vast majority of climbs were dry with just a few wet streaks. Not sure what it will be like tomorrow though. But the whole schoolroom wall looked climbable to me. Green A was definitely good.

Black Peeler is good in winter.
