βeta: The Towel of Babel routes are best belayed off the ground rather than the ledge suggested in the Northern Limestone guide. The 'scramble' to the ledge isn't trivial and can be a bit loose. There is an in-situ sling at the back of the tower for an easy abseil descent.

lizzyb 6 Apr, 2012 2nd O/S the initial ascent to the ledge by the base of the tower was either a grotty wet fairly polished chimney/chasm which in hindsight wish we took, or the apparently clear wall right of the chimney. This was definately on the chossy loose side, with some fresh breakage (we sent a small block down too but looked like several stages had come off in recent times by the colouring of the rock.
