|16m. The long, shallow, leaning groove that cleaves the front of the tower is arduous and superb; one of the very best lines anywhere on grit. Small wires protect throughout but it is a good idea to place a solid runner early on to avoid them unzipping in the (inevitable?) event of a fall. © ROCKFAX|
