Approach to Fern Buttress

Park at the pulloff along the left side of Fayette Station Rd. There are a couple of them, but the largest one will be obvious. Take the trail marked by the brown information sign down a steep, sometimes slippery descent. Before you reach the first signs of climbable rock, you'll end up on a large block with a nice view of a gully and a waterfall if it's not the dry season. Continue uphill from here. The trail forks not long after the large block, take the LEFT trail. In no time at all, you'll end up at the Arm Forces Area, which a relatively short wall, home to bolted 5.11 classics like Mega Jug and Ron Kauk Gets a Perm.
