4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular and interesting route composed of four short but entertaining pitches that are split by accommodating belay ledges. Start at a slim right-facing corner in the middle of the face.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the corner and wall via spaced ledges to horizontal breaks. Traverse left and pull onto a belay ledge at the base of a slab.
2) 4c, 6m. The intricate, short slab and corner lead to another good ledge with peg and nut belays.
3) 5a, 10m. Move above the belay steeply to below an overhang, peg. Move left and gain a small corner above with a bit of a struggle. Continue to a belay on the edge of the buttress at a tree.
4) 15m. Follow the cleanest line up the edge of the buttress to the summit of the Western Tower. © Rockfax

Lead P1,2&3 in one. Started direct at the bottom as the traverse from right to left was seeping as a result the first 15m was very poorly protected until I reached the horizontal break and got back on route. Found the left ward first mantel shelf fairly bold and then suffered from rope drag after not extending the roof peg on the second overhang enough. Had to lower off and unclip having done the crux move, was very relieved to make the big tree ledge and give my partner the final lead. Oh, forgot to mention it got dark whilst I was faffing on P1 so did it all in head torches! Great adventure.

This climb triggered the walkie-talkies purchase... Used half ropes, with Jack joining all pitches and belaying from he top of the route. This caused the pink to be round the right of a bulge in the rock, while the blue was round the left of the bulge- the route runs beneath the bulge and up to the left of it. I was stuck with each rope pulling me under said bulge O.o Jack couldn't hear or see me (frustrating), couldn't climb out over either. Most frustration was caused by this being such a wonderful route otherwise!- great holds, great location, shame about the rope management... Maybe next time we'll split it into separate pitches, or use the walkie-talkies :D

Tired to layback the exit of the roof on pitch 3 and it's not the way forward! Layback/mantle might be a better idea next time. Gear was pretty good throughout.

wow what a route.not really polished as guides suggest.i led the 1st pitch which was sparse on pro and delicate with a bold move around a block.steve led the unprotected short slab.then i did the brilliant 3rd pitch crux of the climb an ran the easy 4th pitch in with it.

Lots of styles, face climbing then a slab then a powerful awkward move. Good fun and not particularly polished

Lead all pitches, 3rd pitch tricky. Retro flash (o/s)

The crux is definitely getting up past the block after the peg at the beginning of the 3rd pitch

Aaron Phillips 07/Apr/10 2nd dnf

seconded pitch one, then had to lower off due to the roof on pitch 3 seeping badly. if it is dry, then by all means go ahead. NOTE: the peg on pitch one was missing.

Not my best day... found first pitch challenging - and tough for a 4b! Then my turn to lead on pitch 2 - 5a pitch - bottled in first time... then returned after Andy had tried - and nailed it - moves actually pretty good - a great climb!

Only lead the 5a pitch. We went slightly off route on the sencond pitch so had to traverse back to the start of the 5a pitch. Topped out in near dark.

I led pitch 1 and 2,Martin lead the 5a pitch and then I led the last pitch.By the time we got to the top it was dark, so walking back to the bags was an adventure with only a lighter a show the way.
