βeta: I thought it would be helpful to provide actual instructions to find this problem to save others scrabbling around for an hour. As of Mar-22 the forest is quite destroyed by the recent storms so there are a lot of fallen trees. This is the exact location of the gruffalo: ///waged.wand.grazed (if you use what3words) 55.508410, -1.879558 (if you use google maps etc) There isn't a best approach. You're probably best following the main track to a little before the pin, turning left, walking up the hillside, then turning right and going along to the pin. You'll see a large craggy feature of rock and the gruffalo is along this. This is a very cool line but unfortunately features quite a grim hold. Worth doing but not comfortable unless you like nasty pockets.

βeta: Actually, the best way to find The Gruffalo and any of the other rocks thereabouts is to use the map and description in the guide, which can be found on the County Psyche FaceBook page as 'Hepburn South'.

βeta: Don\'t follow map provided on FA vid as it\'s slightly off. From https://maps.app.goo.gl/HxwufGd99L7v5A4s9 you can just about see some rock through the trees which is right by the gruffalo, easiest way is to walk directly to it through the undergrowth.
