The main rock is hard to find. Took us ages. Look for a (small) cairn on the side of the trail. Go up over the rocks to reach the cragg. The grid reference for the main cragg is NN844501.

Anyone know why the climbs on Easter Island buttress are roped/taped off at present?? Also the climbs on Secret Garden crag are inaccessible at the moment due to masses of cut rhodedendrum bushes.. Went there on 25.08.12, and wasn't able to climb. Finding the crags in the woodland at present, is also very difficult (unless you have been previously) due to fallen trees/cut rhodedenrums.

The Bouldering in Scotland book has quite clear directions to the bouldering walls, and some nice climbing when you get there, especially on hot days when the shade is very welcome!

Personally could not find the crag! Watch out for the table and chairs (an important waymarker) described in the guidebook - I don't think they exist anymore.

Almost all the grades and stars are wrong for Secret Garden. Gary's Scottish Rock is accurate except for: Missing Link is pointless and easier than Faithless, and Brass Monkeys is F6b+. Crag is a dick to find particularly with chopped rhodendron carnage, but is worth a visit on a fresh dry day.

A few of the grades seem questionable and some climbs are not listed in the correct order.
