Rockfax Description
24m. Take the first section of The Golden Tower then attack the sustained hairline crack just right of the arete. Excellent climbing in a fine position and high in the grade. In Western Grit the numbers of Gates of Perception and The Golden Tower have been switched on the topo. Gates of Perception follows the left-hand line higher on the tower. © Rockfax

finished up the L arete, which seemed logical. Cleaned out the top crack on the RHS too, and looks like another good move to finish on the RHS of the arete. Would be a better line without the option to go left.
