Descend from Maggie's Farm & Rainy Day Woman by using the Class-2 gully just to the west (climber's left) of Rainy Day Woman. From the top of Maggie's Farm, walk to the north (slightly right and back from the top of the route). Circle counter-clockwise around behind the back of the formation (descending gradually) until reaching the top of the aforementioned gully. Then descend the gully to arrive at the start of the routes.
