Rockfax Description
From the remains of a wall, move left to good holds in the break. Climb straight up, keeping just right of the arete, to the final ledge of Right-hand Tower. The original finish is up the left side of the nose using a small flake at E2 5c though topping out as for Right-hand Tower is more in keeping with the lower section. © Rockfax

Round. Tricky to see and place gear as all holds slopers. Best to do quickly !

a bit of urgency required at the third break, had to continue up. Rope useless at that point.

finished straight up, as seamed logical and the left hand finish looked harder

Tough for E1 5b because quite pushy in bottom half. Ground fall if come off before second gear placement.

The start feels a little bold until you get to about the 3rd break when you can get some useful gear in. If you like round slopey holds - this is the route for you.

Original finish. Scary sloping holds all the way up!

Michael led, horrifically sloping holds all the way up! Couldnt help but think we were a bit far left when touching the arete so tried to keep further to the right but the holds really are quite bad, especially on a warm day! Good effort by Mike, left hand finish claiming the E2, found it quite hard, but was soon to find the right hand finish just as hard...
