Rockfax Description
A fantastic, historic way up to the summit of Pillar Rock, and a well used descent from Low Man's summit. It is often soloed but is easily split into pitches. Start at the base of an easy-angled rake that meets the bed of Western Gully just down from the base of Rib and Slab Climb's pale intrusion of rock. Follow the rake up a well worn series of grassy ledges, slabs and corners to gain the summit of Low Man. Move up to a higher grassy terrace, then head up right over worn rock and blocks towards the summit. © Rockfax
