Approach notes

Not on access land, but a footpath runs through it.

Had a good day here yesterday, on the High Man buttress - This seems to be the main place to waste your time. I couldn't quite figure out what "The Rock Ramp" was, via the process of elimination I think I now know, but the lines are not clear. Not sure where the line "Main face" climbs on the EM CM boulder. I managed four lines on this block and I'm not sure which one felt like the "Main" one.
