Climbers on Tower Crack, 5.9

Description 

The Keep is the keeper of some great climbs. From the Moderate Byne's Crack (5.7) thru' the thought provoking The Knock (5.11d R) to the utterly desperate Parthian Shot (5.14a X), this is the place to watch, and be seen.


Getting There 

Next along the edge from Nosferatu Area.
