Sweet thread; lots of amazing climbing photos!
Here's some photos from my camping trip up there; we ended up doing lots of hiking, but didn't do any climbing.

Is there some good cragging or bouldering in the Eldred or near Powell river that dries quicker than the walls this time of year sac? I don't think I can make those dates but would like to visit there sometime or next time something like this is happening.

Sport climbing?

There is alot of oceanside bouldering on good clean granite. As well as some shorter trad routes.
Most of the established freeclimbs in the Eldred dry pretty quick.
As for sport.... there is a crag (Higgyland) right in P.R. on the lake with lots of bolted lines of varying grade/quality.
Anyway, this site spells it out pretty good:
