The much photographed Eye Of Horus lies to the South of the Ghosts and uses similar parking. The actual routes are on the Eye formation itself and go up both sides of the "Eye". The rock is good and the routes are better than average.

Getting There 

Park as if you are going to the Ghosts or just before at the "Mini Eye" camping spot, a small hole in a boulder marks this campsite. Approach the routes on the Eye by a bit of tunneling under a very large fallen "pillar" or scramble up just east of the base over boulders.

Hidden in plain site are a handful of some very quality lines. Scrambling up the boulders is a hassle so when you're at the base of Climb Like an Egyptian turn around to the east and smear up that micro-face gain you a sandy corridor you can walk around. The boulders go, they're just a hassle.
