A good spot for something different. Probably enough climbing to have a fun day. More than that if you throw in bouldering too. The rock quality is excellent and reminiscent of Corte Madera.
8 East to 79/Japatul rd South. Left onto Lyons Valley Road. Park at mile marker 13 (appears to be gone) which is just at the base of a dirt road. The dirt road leads uphill to the summit and the climbing. The dirt road appears to be popular to those with moderately serious 4wd vehicles and takes you to within 5 minutes of the climbing. Otherwise, hike up the road for about 1 hour.
