How scary was it?! I tell you what, I'm glad it was you and not me. Keep on that little rocky path, passing another pine tree and some yellow gorse (be careful, my friend Josiah Bosiah once spiked himself on this, and ever since, he's only ever been able to get terrible haircuts!) You'll get to a bench at the viewpoint, and you can maybe even wave at the boring people who stuck to the Road.
From here, follow the most obvious path, towards the trees. You'll meet up with the Great West Road (and the boring people). Where you meet the path, peer really carefully into the trees. Can you see it?
I saw it and thought that it didn't make sense at all! Looked like someone had written down what they thought my friend Sean was saying (he's a Geordie)! Apparently, you need this code to get the password...
