It may be a little hard to see on the map above, but the westernmost camp is actually a little bit to the west of the western Gates of Halvung, underneath a walkway. The Gates of Halvung are similar to the moongates in Ro'Maeve, in the sense that one person in the party requires a Cast Metal Plate, obtained from the surrounding area to open the gates after first checking one of the two Gates of Halvung.
To get the Cast Metal Plate, first click on a Gates of Halvung, and then search around Mount Zhayolm (the area "outside" the two gates) for a ???, usually based on the bottom of broken tree stumps and buildings. Be careful as you explore, as the slimes, red crawlers, pugils all aggro.
The other two camps are behind the eastern Gates of Halvung (the closest ones to the staging point). This is the same enclosed area that Cerberus pops in, although he doesn't pop near where you will be xp'ing.
In order to get to camp, it's advised that one member be either a BLM, or be able to come /BLM so you can enter Halvung from the Bhaflau Thickets entrance and simply Escape out, depositing you at (L-6) of Mount Zhayolm, saving you considerable time on travel. Alternatively, if nobody can Escape, then teleport to the Halvung staging point, and move to camp from there.
All the mobs here con VT to 75, with puppets conning T. In addition, Hilltroll Monks can Rock Smash, which Petrifies although can be absorbed by shadows. Most of the trolls also have Overthrow, which goes through shadows, and knocks back. Diamondhide is AoE Stoneskin, which cannot be Dispelled. You may also on rare occasions, come across an Earth Elemental around camp, but it should be manageable by this point.
