Located in Circle Creek Basin, there are a couple of good routes here, along with one very good moderate 5.6/7 bolted climb. The walk into the rock is pleasant, and the remoteness guarantees privacy. The rock is west facing with plenty of shade trees at the base.

Getting There 

Park at the Circle Creek Overlook Trailhead and walk straight down the trail/road for about a mile. The road loops at the end with Stripe Rock sitting directly in front of you the whole way.

You can easily downclimb from Cruel Shoes or Dykes by heading south down the low angle ridge line and then a little east near the bottom - should you ever find yourself on top without a rope

I did not like RKM's beta for the downclimb. I guess I didn't find the right line? All I saw was a cliff out near a tree.

I ended up down-climbing the features on the north side until I got to a tree then downclimbed that. I wouldn't recommend this method unless you have really good route finding abilities. The second time I used this method a foot hold broke so watch out especially where water runs and always maintain 3 points.
