the initial ascent to the ledge by the base of the tower was either a grotty wet fairly polished chimney/chasm which in hindsight wish we took, or the apparently clear wall right of the chimney. This was definately on the chossy loose side, with some fresh breakage (we sent a small block down too but looked like several stages had come off in recent times by the colouring of the rock.
