Still exposed, just had to part the long grass. Good views from here.

I've been carrying the sketch for this about in my bag of SB tools for about 5 years, but as Chris had kindly uncovered the block 10 mins earlier it was surplus to requirements.

It's still there. Wouldn't have found it without the recent visits from others.

Easily found thanks to yesterday's gardening courtesy of 'trigging on an island'. Thanks!

Surface block relatively simple to find. My big booboo was forgeting to bag the FBM after climbing Binns Hill in the meantime. D'oh.

No sign of it. With the verge neatly cut and just by the entrance to a property I wasnt prepared to dig it out! Spectacular views down the valley from here. Just across the road from the Coronation Rd rivet - and anyone hoping to find that one will need the sketch - theres nothing obvious on view.

It was definetely buried and the grass was well cared for, so I wasn't going to dig a hole in it!

As you see by the photo's the suface block is below the surface! had to crawl around sticking pencil into verge to locate, eventually found found at a depth of 12cm, would think it in good condition, didnt want to dig a hole as the area has been landscaped
