|The Doughnut Shop
This is a 50 foot southeast facing basalt crag with a handful of entertaining sport, crack and mixed routes. At one time the hangers were stripped for unknown reasons, but some have been replaced, and more will soon be rehangered. There is guaranteed to be no crowds here, as this wall is long forgotten and abandoned but still offers some fun climbing.
The original guide to the Doughnut Shop by Samet & Jett has been shared thanks to the authors and the Los Alamos Mountaineers:
Approach same as for the Playground. Once at the Playground, head north and cross onto a talus field for roughly 100 yards to locate the leftmost route Suckin' Custard which is a 4 bolt hangerless leaning face.

The bolts on the 5.10 climbs Little Debby's Ding Dong and Fat Cops On Swivel Chairs and Doughynuts all have hangers.
The 4 harder sport climbs are missing hangers. (edit 3/13)
I think I heard that Scott Beguin is the one who replaced some of the bolts/hangers/anchors, which I appreciate, at least.
There is a shorter way to get here vs. than going to the Playground, then backtracking, but it's hard to describe. Keep an eye out for a gully down to the left, about when the trail turns to the right, and drop down there, then continue south to reach the cliff-base.
