Description Suggest change

Pitch 1 - Start at the bottom of a faint crack below an obvious cave. Stay to the right of the cave and follow crack with care as little gear and loose rock for the first 10 metres. Continue onto a slab and unto easier ground for 30 metres until a large flat ledge with nut and cam belay below a small wall. 50m

Pitch 2 -  Move up to the left side of the wall following a faint crack onto a ledge with good protection. Afterwards move onto a small slab section and into a depression, continue up the face and with a tricky step onto another slab section. Nut and cam belay at the base of a large wide crack on the left side of the face. 50m

Pitch 3 - Work your way up the crack/gully and scramble up easier ground for 30m on the left of the face until a large crack is reached with nut and cam belay. 35m

Pitch 4 - Move right onto the face climbing carefully up loose rock onto more stable but poorly protected ground. Continue for 15m up on top of the face and venture right towards a large niche in the rock below an orange wall. 25m

Pitch 5 - Move above or around the large block to the right of the niche (be aware of rope drag for this section), continue up the loose slab and through a small crack. From the crack make an airy traverse rightwards and up a gully with some lovely bridging moves. Final scramble to the top of the tower. 50-55m

Descent on the right hand side via a series of steep gullies and crack systems.
