Description

Terrace Tower is the squat, seemlingly less significant tower that lies in the center of the mini cirque to the south of Lotus Flower Tower. As seen from Fairy Meadows, Terrace Tower's east face resembles an alpine version of Yosemite's Rostrum.

Because of it's relatively stable rock (at least on the upper part) Terrace Tower has seen a fair amount of free climbing activity in recent years. Also, the climbs on Terrace Tower are about half as tall as the climbs on neighboring Bustle Peak or on Lotus Flower Tower, which makes any outing on Terrace Tower a less commiting one.

Getting There

From Fairy Meadows, follow the southern drainage (the northern drainage takes you to Lotus Flower Tower), to the base of the wall. Expect about an hour of hiking from the meadow.
