Rockfax Description
The left arete of the tower features steady climbing leading to a high crux where you might need to get hold of yourself. A short and bold layback sprint above a good safety net is the spice. © Rockfax

βeta: I did the dirty lower arete direct on the RHS which involved a bit of a wild slap with a big Friend at my feet. The whole thing certainly felt like E4 to me. Possibly a soft one but never E3. 2.5 stars?

βeta: Hard to assess this route for difficulty and quality, I enjoyed it and got scared but its over so quickly I'm not sure its E4 and certainly not 3 star.
