Nice quiet secluded spot with good views.
Use same approach as Crowley Towers. Take the climber's trail marked with carabiner signpost to the backside of the Flumes. Follow the Westside of the Balconies wall as it contours uphill. When you come around the end of the wall Crowley towers will come into view. Follow a distinct trail until you reach the final ridge where the trail turns left to the towers. At this point turn right (away from the Crowley towers)towards the bump like formations on top of the Balconies.
