If you are going in june, the chances to get climbing seem to be quite small.
as far as i understand, most of iceland is iceclimbing. At least the icelanders i have talked to, dont know good rock.
There might be some, but iceland is definetely not a top rockclimbing destination.

A lot of things donīt work in Iceland since I posted that link, like the economy, the banks.....
There is a topo guide to the biggest climbing area called Hnappavellir 2012, online no idea whatīs available.
Iceland isnīt exactly a sport-climbing mecca though!

Just Google Hnappavellir climbing or something similar and you get videos and stuff. Its bolted volcanic.
