This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.

You will reach a very large boulder about 30 feet past a smaller boulder on the left side of the trail. Stay on the the trail up and right of the very large boulder for about 50 more feet as the trail switches back and you will reach the plated wall on which the first routes listed are located.

Could anyone give better directions to this area? Is this the same parking lot as access to drive-by? Would love to climb there!

nope.....park as if climbing at playground, purgatory, etc. the Shire is almost exactly opposite of purgatory. take off out of the back of the parking lot. there is a small footbridge to start out, and hang a left on the dirt road....walk about 7 minutes. right before a very huge boulder (20 foot tall) there is a path up to the right....the Shire is 50 foot up this path.

our reading of the 3rd edition guide showed the 4th route to the right on the wall with Audie and ostensibly 'Miranda Rayne" to be the 5.9 when experience indicates this to be the 10c. That fits with the next route being Sig. Other ~10b.

The error is in the 3rd edition guide book. The description is correct but the map at the top of page 321 shows Miranda Rayne just to the left of the arete and G-Man to the right. In reality both are to the left of the arete with G-man being the rightmost. We ended up "warming up" on the 10.c G-man thinking it was the 9 Miranda Rayne. Live and learn.
