Rockfax Description
Interesting climbing up the jumble of rounded cracks and breaks. Start on the right and climb slightly leftward to the large horizontal break. Move right up the diagonal crack above and then back leftwards past breaks and overlaps to reach the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start on the right hand edge of the tower, then follow a line of rounded holds trending leftwards up the centre of the wall. Gain and follow a left to right crack to a horizontal break beneath an overhang. Traverse leftwards until beneath a flake on the lip, which is used to gain the elephant bum finish.
