Rockfax Description
Wandering but with a good finale. Climb the easy chimney then step out left and make a short traverse to reach the base of the central flake-line. Romp up this. © Rockfax

βeta: Although it's only really the top 1/2 that counts, it's a brilliant, well protected top 1/2. Great climb - and a lot better after failing on Tower Gully!

Graeme Hammond 14 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S Excellent way to enjoy the upper face of tower face at a lower grade, the chimney is much better than it looks and the traverse is good too. If it wasn't so superseded by tower face and on another crag it would probably get 3 stars, as it is it is probably worth 2 stars. Unfortunately given no stars in the 2007 guide book a real unsung gem.
