Approaching directly from the parking area, while deviously simple looking, is more difficult than approaching from the north side: Instead, Head north from the parking area past the Hoodgie Wall and Truffle tower. A small gully leads you up easily to a notch between Truffle and the backside of the Biscuit. Go south through the notch and find the 2x6 plank bridges that lead up into the Biscuit corridor.
