The site, near Castle Rock was delineated in a previous season by another investigator. The area was carefully searched and plants located, identified and as necessary, collected for herbarium and confirmation. Originally it was proposed that some form of detailed recording would be done which would allow future assessment of changes in the vegetation. However, details are still unclear and a vegetation list of plants found at this site was the only information collected. The area is significant in that there is an abundance of Usnea sphacelata.
