The White Dome - Tower 3

Climbs 21 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 1888m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Without a doubt this set of cliffs (made up of 5 towers) is the piece de resistance of the Ida Ougnidif Area, containing fine adventurous outings from single pitch to 200 metres in length on some of the most immaculate rock in the region. A deceptively short 35 minute approach time for most of the cliffs and a very pleasant walk to reach a delightful setting in the heart of this crag infested landscape.

Tower 3 is more complex and slightly rambly-looking on first inspection. However, it contains some of the best climbing hereabouts, with lots of different types of climbing, a huge variety of grades and some truly characterful routes, all on immaculate quartzite and with choices from single pitch test pieces to adventurous 2-4 pitch outings.
