Rockfax Description
Technically a touch easier than Golden Tower. Climb the slightly-disposable wall (pegs) heading for a rest just left of the notch in the final roof. Finish over this with a flourish. The Original Finish out right via the notch is E3. © Rockfax

Finished up the groove on the right, long hard move to jug at the top of the groove.

the bottom wall had good moves but was quite loose. has a peg come out? there was no gear until about 2/3rd height. ended up finished up the HVS as the roof was really loose and the holds had ferns growing out of them.

Tried to lead but came off at roof, pretty disappointed but guess I wasnt far off. There go my delusions of having all E2s sorted. It had to happen.

Direct finish has to be the E2. Felt considerably easier than the right.

Great climb up to the roof. Leader resulted to aid for finish. Having removed the gear I had nothing left to hold onto. Lowered off.
