242m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic, the most popular climb on the cliff and with good reason. Start just right of the fall-line from the groove on the right-hand side of the pillar at a well-trodden area.
1) 4+, 50m. Wander up easy slabs to the 1st bolt then climb the groove via the odd tricky move past a stance moving over left to another on the tip of the tower - 10 bolts.
2) 5, 30m. Climb the face trending slightly left to a short tricky wall, the crux, leading to a groove. Up this to a stance out left.
3) 4, 20m. Trend right up the wall by good sustained climbing then move up and left to a small exposed stance.
4) 5, 20m. Up the face until a couple of tricky moves lead to easier ground. Up the gully to the top. © Rockfax

A very good route, although a little tough in the full sun of the mid day heat. The first of the 5s felt stiff for the grade? Really good adventure, what with the via Ferrata at the top and the walking + abseil descents.

Found it too hot so rapped off the first belay (after already heading down once to pull a dozen cactus needles out of my hand - ouch!)

Crap 1st pitch (rachel), not very well described in the book, awkward and spaced gear. Pitch 2 was much better. Rachel fell off the 6a+ variation to p3, rescued her by lowering to the belay then 2 assisted abseils to the floor, helicopter, broken pelvis...

Disaster... First pitch not great and hard to find the right bolts. Bit green and had to down climb when I realised I was going the wrong way. Pitch 2 George led which was decent. Then I went to lead the final pitch doing the 6a+ variation. Just below the roof the rock was quite wet in the line of the bolts so I went slightly left and away from my last draw. Pulled a very large block out which sent me flying off and the. Swung into the rock with my side. Broke my pelvis and had to be helicoptered off ! Bit of a bummer for my climbing holiday ...

Climbed with John Makin. A good warm up route for what was to come and a great start to our trip. Lovely climbing on good rock for each pitch. If you walk/scramble up to the first ledge to start 50m ropes are fine.
