Drive to Pigeon Bay and turn right at the beach. After half a km turn right again on Starvation Gully Road and drive right up to the ridgeline. The road gets rougher and steeper at the top, and 4WD (or at least low ratio) may be advisable. Park somewhere at the top of the hill.

The cliffs are aligned along the edge of the ridge to the south. It is easiest to walk around the back of most of the the cliffs and approach from the right hand side.

Descent. Most of the cliffs are easy to walk off.
