How long is the approach to this crag? The Handren guide I think says 30 minutes. Is that accurate?

Do you start from the same place as for climbs on Windy Peak (S Face)?

30 minutes is accurate if you're a fast uphill hiker, 45 minutes might be more likely... Park in the same locale as if you're going up to the South Face.
