The White Dome - Tower 5

Climbs 13 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 2011m a.s.l – Faces NW

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 5 has two faces - the more intimidating west face with its long and involved excursions through some tremendous territory, and surprisingly, with a good collection of all grades, from HS to E4. Then there is the far more amenable and pleasant south face, with slightly less protracted climbs and an easy descent down a rake slicing the face towards its righthand side. Again, immaculate quartzite a trademark here.
