(N37.6022 W119.0185) or (37.6022, -119.0185) is the approximate latitude longitude I got from my GPS, two measurements separated by six hours.
Another way to approach is to start up the Crystal Lake trail, and continue on it past the water tanks (lat long ~ N37.6043 W119.0145). Above the cabins the trail climbs moderately along the SouthEast (left) side of the ridge with glimpses of Lake George. Then the trail bears right slightly (away from Lake George) and goes flat for about 100 meters. Before the trail turns sharp left, see a faint trail forking right (N37.6025 W119.0165). Follow that about 175 meters gentle West to the Spring Wall.

the Lewis print guidebook says that some of the Horseshoe Piles crags were originally used for top-roping, and that most of the bolts were added only after 2000.
We set up Top-Ropes from some of the two-bolt or two-chain anchors on Spring Wall. We felt comfortable reaching only some of them with unprotected climbing moves. Some of the top anchors are set in the steeper rock below the slopy area above (with gentler rock slabs and dirt and vegetation).
We reached those top anchors by scrambing up around the Right (west) side of cliff. (We didn't try the Left side). Glad we had approach shoes with sticky climbing rubber. The top area is fairly slopy, so be careful of slipping off (and be careful not to dislodge loose rocks + dirt).
