An easy find after walking 69 paces with my long legs.

Walked towards Ben Rhines from the trig and after about 80 paces, there it was. Nice big bolt. Good views. With Nozzer.

Took me more than 80 paces--and impossible to walk in a straight line because of the boggy areas near the trig. But easy to find.

I don't usually do non pillar triangulation markers but this one required very little extra effort with its close proximity to trig pillar 11094.

Log #177. A surface block with rivet, easy to find by heading south from pillar. [ExP-146/MiP-3/Rev-2/BM-11/IS-12/Other-3]

I expected this to be burried,so went prepared for a search. However, it was really easy to find. From the main trig pillar, plot a line to the top of Ben Rinnes and pace out about 76m (80 paces for me)

Ben Rinnes from the main trig pillar If you look closely, my walking pole is in line with the summit of Ben Rinnes. The block is just where the ground starts to drop out of view
