Jumping in, so to speak--others can elaborate if I am wrong--there is little good climbing rock in Death Valley. Most I have seen is crap for climbing. The Grand Canyon is the same way. Joshua Tree is different, it has excellent granite to climb on. Death Valley has sed rox, meta rox, volcanic rox, mostly broken up, soft, not shear, lots of talus, and so on.
I would suggest hiking or scrambling. Enjoy.
