Description 

The big Section is one of the southern areas at Mt. Nemo.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, walk the main trail to the outlook. Turn right and follow the trail that goes along the cliff line. You walk for ~ 10-15 minutes. You will come to a lot, which you can easily walk down. This is GooseBerry Gully. Descend this gully. Turn left. Many routes follow a numbering convention in this area. Look for yellow painted numbers at the base of the rock. The Big section starts at #24B and ends at 13.
