The grooved arete. There is a belay bolt at waist height. This is the upper section of the full version of the route Voices in the Bower which starts on the Bottom Deckio. © ROCKFAX
The righthand arete of The Bower (right of Godbeams). Clip the first staple and swing right on to the face above the void. Climb the grooved arete above. A very exposed F3 with 10 metres of air below your heels from the start. There is a separate clip at waist height on the left wall for your belayer.
