Park by a beech wood a few hundred metres east of Callaly. A path leads up through the woods, near the stone wall. Keep in the wood, avoiding the track which goes left onto forestry roads, and go over the top of the hill (Castle Hill), past a small quarry and down to a stile. There is a small sign for McArtneys cave just over the stile.
This buttress which has a prominent flake up its centre and is topped by a slab is reached by traversing the hillside leftwards for 50 metres from McArtneys Cave.
This superb buttress is approximately 100 metres left of McArtneys Cave. It has a jam crack to the right of a smooth overhanging pancake-covered wall, which is The Young.
Is situated 50 metres left and a little higher up the hillside.
