First, follow directions to the RJ that are listed on the main page.
From the RJ just south of Zen Creek, take the shared razors edge/Zen trail down (eastward) for about 1 minute and turn left at the fork. Follow the short foot path to the top of the overlook. There are two options now:
Rap from the top of Zen Point via the anchors on "Buried Treasure". Continue down and right to the point (north-facing wall) -- if you lay down and look over the edge you can see the bolted rap anchors. Scramble down and around to the anchors for the rap (2 double rope rappels to the ground).
Via gully Follow the same trail directions to near the overlook and look for a faint left turn. This takes you down and left and into the gully. A short scramble gets you to the base of "Zen Face".
