Big Ben Tower Rock Climbing
Big Ben faces pretty much due south and, as a result, picks up lots of sun. It's also shrouded in obscurity so you'll likely be the only person there when you go. With a handfull of cragging routes at the base and two full length routes to the summit, it has a lot to offer anyone who doesn't mind the occasional (or not so occasional) creaky hold.
