When you park at the south parking lot you will have to walk south west past a rock gully to a sandy pumice gully. This is much farther of a walk than you think. Just keep going until you find a gully that makes sense to walk down. Once you descend the horrible pumice gully, trend left to get to Vapor Lock area. The first little bit of cliffs you get to is not it, go a little further until you see 100 ft cliffs or bigger on your left.
