Between Cleft Buttress/Notice Board Crack and the huge obelisk of Cubic Block are a series of short buttresses and blocks hidden in the trees and containing about thirty routes. Most of these are awkward to find and tend to be green and overgrown in the summer, however the first of these is clear of the trees and offers a few easier routes. It is usually less busy than Lichen Slab or the back of the Cubic Block.
