Description

Lovely Tower is a freestanding boulder as tall as Wave Wall, right next door. Of the six routes it holds, five are are bolted and four are must-dos, particularly the Lovely Arete (5.11a). If you climb in the 11-to-12 range, this is the block for you.

Getting There

From the Dog Walk Gully, begin hiking with the cliffline to your right, roughly North/North West. Follow the cliffline past the Royal Arches Wall and continue until the wall blends into a large roof formation. The large roof is known as Snakes Roof, keep walking past it and directly uphill is a detached, standalone section of cliffline. This tower is known as Lovely Tower.
