If you are considering climbing Orc Tower by any route, be aware that there is a large amount of loose rock at the base of the tower. Anything knocked down will rain down onto the popular routes below in the Country (e.g. Zoom, Wham).

Even if you're really careful, pulling the rope while rappelling will still knock down some rocks, so it's probably best to only climb on Orc Tower on weekdays when there are not as many people around. Aug 26, 2013
