Better directions would be follow the directions above until you make the right on the Sheltowee. Make a creek crossing and then hike for a few more minutes until you pass above the limestone band. The trail actually passes close enough you can touch the limestone. Immediately after passing the limestone band look for a drainage on the left. Follow it up to the left side of the main prow.
