Rockfax Description
The strongest line on the wall, and one of the best the Tower has to offer. The route takes the left-hand, full-height crack all the way to the top. The climbing will tire your feet and test your resolve; staying power is essential! Don't expect a hard crux move, but don't expect any rests either. © Rockfax

Duncan Campbell 15 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Brilliant. Felt a bit sustained lower down but it definitely gets trickier for a section - not sure if it's 6b as it didnt feel too bad? Maybe just a lot of 6a moves that get a little trickier towards the end? There is a runner mid crux but I pressed on as it would be hard to place. Wanted to do this for a while and it didn’t disappoint.

Keendan 11 Jun, 2013 Lead O/S A much smoother lead than the other E5's I've been sketching up. Chuffed with a techy 6b face climb, but admittedly it was soft 6b. Moves are not too hard and the gear is in good places, never dangerous.
