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 

Lovely Tower sits almost exactly in the middle of the East Falls and the North Falls. From the Dog Walk Gully, follow the cliff north and east past Royal Arches Wall. From the North Falls, go south and west past Spleef Peak. You won't miss it.
