Description 

West facing, sun during most of the day but it's in a fairly tight gully so keeps shade longer in the morning than other west-facing walls.

Getting There 

Take the left fork of the loop trail at the top of the stairs and head past Doctor's Wall to the split in the rocks at the north end. It's the left-hand, or west facing tower.

It takes the line of red painted bolts up a steep and sustained technical face, along a right-trending seam, and then through a burly series of overlaps. At almost 35m long and with no rests in the last two thirds, this is a real pump fest....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Some recent new route action, and clean-up of old routes, has turned this into a destination for ultra-long hard sport pitches. The color-coded bolt hangers give it a bit of a gym feel, but they actually work pretty well for the situation. The downloadable supplement at skaha.org has details.
