The guide book states that this is a practically worthless rock, I disagree. It is a good spot to take beginners, good TR anchors at the top, solid rock (except maybe
How Loose is your Goose) not to high, and fairly secluded. Once you are done here you can climb @ Mustang Wall or vice versa. Also Bear Island tends to be in the sun while Mustang wall is in the shade. Lots of cool bouldering around the area as well.

I agree that Bear Island is a nice place to go if you are looking to avoid the crowds and enjoy a lot of moderates. As mentioned, it's in the sun most of the day.
