We investigate subsets of a multifractal decomposition of the limit set of a conformal graph directed Markov system which is constructed from the Cayley graph of the free group $F_{d}$ with at least two generators. The subsets we consider are parametrised by a normal subgroup $N$ of $F_{d}$ and mimic the radial limit set of a Kleinian group. Our main results show that, regarding the Hausdorff dimension of these sets, various results for Kleinian groups can be generalised. Namely, under certain natural symmetry assumptions on the multifractal decomposition, we prove that, for a subset parametrised by $N$, the Hausdorff dimension is maximal if and only if $F_{d}/N$ is amenable and that the dimension is greater than half of the maximal value. We also give a criterion for amenability via the divergence of the Poincaré series of $N$. Our results are applied to the Lyapunov spectrum for normal subgroups of Kleinian groups of Schottky type.
