This area lies in a hidden gully parallel to the main gully but closer to the Snake Charmer area.

From the central parking, follow a well marked path that runs parallel to the road and keeping some smaller crags on your left. Follow the cairns right, up, and onto some rock slabs. Scramble up and over boulders to access the hidden gully. The routes are on the left wall.
