Rockfax Description
Technically a touch easier than Golden Tower. Climb the slightly-disposable wall (pegs) heading for a rest just left of the notch in the final roof. Finish over this with a flourish. The Original Finish out right via the notch is E3. © Rockfax

βeta: Glad to read your comments Goi about the right hand variation which is supposedly e2 5c. The moves going through the notch are never 5c in a month of Sundays imho! Ive tried this route twice now and have failed on both occassions. There is a decent crimp above the twin pegs and then a shit one above that but what your supposed to do from there is beyond me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as im getting pissed off now!
