Description 

This area comprises the largish slab left of the Main Slab. The bulk of this slab lies above the base of the mountain's slope, and is accessible by either walking 100m left and taking right-rising ramps to reach it, or by scrambling up the steep gully just left of the Main Slab.
Back in the day, this slab was visited and a single exploratory route climbed, the name of which is now applied to the entire slab.

Getting There 

From the Main Slab, scramble up the steep gully on the left to the edge of this slab, about 100' upslope.
