Since there have been a few people looking for info on this place, I dug out the old info and am posting it here. I don't really have the time to write it all up in a formal fashion (if someone else wants to do this, send me an email and I'll edit this post), so use the numbered info in each area in conjunction with the "picture" entitled Topo, and that should be get you where you're going.
Drive to hanging rock state park and hike the cooks wall trail. The trail eventually peters out, and there are a couple of access gullies found here on the left, though they are likely to be overgrown. The first large and obvious gully/cleft will lead you down just west of the "Cookbook" area. There are some nice sheer walls on the left side, with some old unknown routes here. The best way to approach the "Cooks Fin" is to continue down the ridge a short ways and locate the gully on the left. It will bring you out by the "Breakfast Wall".
