4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular and interesting route composed of four short but entertaining pitches that are split by accommodating belay ledges. Start at a slim right-facing corner in the middle of the face.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the corner and wall via spaced ledges to horizontal breaks. Traverse left and pull onto a belay ledge at the base of a slab.
2) 4c, 6m. The intricate, short slab and corner lead to another good ledge with peg and nut belays.
3) 5a, 10m. Move above the belay steeply to below an overhang, peg. Move left and gain a small corner above with a bit of a struggle. Continue to a belay on the edge of the buttress at a tree.
4) 15m. Follow the cleanest line up the edge of the buttress to the summit of the Western Tower. © Rockfax

βeta: If you're careful with ropework it's probably best to do the first three pitches as one. Superb route though a little polished around the crux.
