Rockfax Description
Super direct and a super route. Start direct up thin cracks in the slab just right of the arete to join the parent route which is then followed to the Leaning Tower. Then climb the bulging crack and well-positioned crest of the buttress. One of the very best routes on Bleaklow. . © Rockfax

Messed up the start as way too reachy for me so agree with comments giving it 5b for the short. True battle on the upper crux (start would be the first of two cruxes for me), but managed through. Wish I put my jamming gloves on...

Amazing climb, well worth three stars and a top50 spot. Sustained 5a I reckon, but the protection is superb in the lower crack while the climbing flows through the bulge very nicely indeed. Despite this, I felt exposed and Steve got a barrage of increasingly excited blasphemy...

Steve Waters, Mynydd 2 Jun, 2009 Lead Started more directly using the thin cracks to right of arete. Mike led off, but fell on the crux. I took over and led through. Careful footwork eases the strenousness. The crux is well protected and consists of a set of steep moves.
