Description

This little area contains a multitude of boulders about 200 metres downhill from 'Mushroom Rock', and just above a slab and wall.

Approach

Initial approach as for Mushroom Rock, using the northern access. About 30m north-west of Mushroom Rock, pick out the orange tape markers going downhill and right (as you face the valley) to Hotwired. When Hotwired comes into view, zig back diagonally left and keep going downhill. If you reach the top of a cliff don't worry - turn left and follow the top of it to reach Scaramouche.
