To TR the 'swiss cheese' area really long slings are suggested for the horn just behind the climbs - a couple of slings made out of 40-50' webbing might be good.

For the interested: the swiss cheese rock is called "tafoni" and is formed by a process called cavernous weathering.

There is camping at Castle Rock State Park.. there's a trail camp about a mile from Goat Rock (two miles from the trailhead) for which reservations must be made in advance through the state park service.

Also, I believe Goat Rock is about a mile from the main parking lot on Skyline Blvd, and is through a Douglas fir/tan oak/madrone forest and chaparral.
