A classic, the most popular climb on the cliff and with good reason. Start just right of the fall-line from the groove on the right-hand side of the pillar at a well-trodden area.
1) 4+, 50m. Wander up easy slabs to the 1st bolt then climb the groove via the odd tricky move past a stance moving over left to another on the tip of the tower - 10 bolts.
2) 5, 30m. Climb the face trending slightly left to a short tricky wall, the crux, leading to a groove. Up this to a stance out left.
3) 4, 20m. Trend right up the wall by good sustained climbing then move up and left to a small exposed stance.
4) 5, 20m. Up the face until a couple of tricky moves lead to easier ground. Up the gully to the top. © Rockfax

Climbed with John Makin. A good warm up route for what was to come and a great start to our trip. Lovely climbing on good rock for each pitch. If you walk/scramble up to the first ledge to start 50m ropes are fine.
