150m, 6 pitches. A must, if only because of the name, and that it is the easiest route to the top. 5c+ with 2 p.a. on penultimate pitch or (a tough) 6a+ free.

GeorgeNunn 11 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Good climbing all the way up. The 5c pitches are soft for the grade compared to other routes in the area such as niedermann. The 6a+ pitch went free and has some cool moves, on small holds, in a great position. Definitely worth going for the free ascent as well bolted before using any aid :) Quite a few routes on this tower though so can be a bit confusing where the route goes. A good topo helps. 3 abs on 60m ropes gets you down, the first ab being almost a full 60m :)
