The excellent Se/Ki climbing guide by Moser, Vernon, and Hickey lists eight routes. Not wanting to plagiarize, I'll only quote a bit:

"From Big Baldy's summit, hike down the rock on the northern slabs for a view of the climbs. As one heads south along th base of the rock, the face steepens and gets longer. Just before the west face rounds into the south face, a spectacular right-facing finger crack/corner with several large overhangs comes into view. This is "Welcome to Big Baldy" and is the most attractive natural line on the cliff. The climbs below are listed in a left-to-right (north-to-south) order:

Spine Line 5.9

Drillathon 5.9

Top Hat 5.10

By Gully 5.6

Young Eagle 5.10d

Phrenology 5.10a/b

Free Enterprise 5.12b

Welcome to Big Baldy 5.11"

I have neglected to type out the detailed route descriptions--for that you can buy the book!

Also, regarding Montecito-Sequoia, the Forest Service doesn't run the lodge. It is ran by a private company, called a concessionaire, who holds a special use permit in order to operate the lodge on Forest Service land.
