95m, 6 pitches. An engaging and adventurous line that meanders up the tower. It features a few sobering run-outs, some rattly rock and a long traverse, so should only be taken on by climbing pairs who are both fully competent at the grade and experienced in a bit of mountaineering-style activity. Prone to seepage in places, it is important to wait for dry conditions. As well as essential tricams (1.0, 1.5, 2.0), supplement your basic rack with a couple of mini-wires and some extra med. cams (no need to lug any big gear up).
Safety note #1: At the end of P2 there is a very sharp edge on the lip of the roof, look after the ropes when belaying the 2nd. 2.0 (blue) tricam essential on this belay (the spike is on it's last legs...)
Safety note #2: The end of P5 is hairy due to hollow rock, stay low when traversing and then climb out leftwards i.e. avoiding the hollow blocks up right.
The Grey Tower finishing pitch is an optional extra for those who still have nerves intact after Ps 1 to 5.
