Does anyone have any beta on this area or any hard limestone in the area. I've looked at the various climbing sites and found nada.

Depends on what you want to know? Last I was there, it was a even mix of RBs versus fixed gear (aka bolts). But I haven't been there in years.

Your best bet is to go to Northern Mtn Supply in Eureka or call them and order Eric's topos if they are available. If not, time to hit the store up and hang out for a bit chit chatting with the staff. You'll get hooked up if you're cool about it.

I always preferred Natural Bridges (access issues) or Trinity Aretes. There is a ton of hard climbing at both. Cecillville is the BOMB but it is a nasty drive out there.

The reality of it is though, all places up north are in less than their "prime" season. Not saying you won't find stuff climbable, but it will dodgey at best considering the season and weather patterns.
