BETA PHOTO: Facing Summit Crag, looking up.
At the top of Old Rag a cliff face that makes up the Summit Crag faces west. Access to the ciimbs is simple enough from climber trails at either side of the summit.
After reaching the summit, find a corridor on the northwest between two boulders and head down a notch that leads downward and around to the base of the cliff.

There are varying ways to get down to the base of these crags. The easiest is to go to the western edge of the summit and find the nice down climb. You'll know it when you're there because there's a 20' hand crack on your left as you walk down,
There are other descents that are a bit of a whack fest combined with squeezing through narrow slots while down climbing.

As Baumgartner says, this approach can be a little tricky. The way he describes, past Beginner's Crack, is outlined in the uploaded photos.
