The longest and best slab climbs in Clifton are found here. The main face is bordered on the left by Tower Gully and on the right by a steeper 3rd class gully called Easy Up. Though brushy, this route does offer an alternative ascent or descent route. The standard descent takes the more easterly broad gully that borders the right side of the Rabbit Buttress.
