Description 

Terrace Tower is the squat, seemlingly less significant tower that lies in the center of the mini cirque to the south of Lotus Flower Tower. As seen from Fairy Meadows, Terrace Tower's east face resembles an alpine version of Yosemite's Rostrum.

Because of it's relatively stable rock (at least on the upper part) Terrace Tower has seen a fair amount of free climbing activity in recent years. Also, the climbs on Terrace Tower are about half as tall as the climbs on neighboring Bustle Peak or on Lotus Flower Tower, which makes any outing on Terrace Tower a less commiting one.

Getting There 

From Fairy Meadows, follow the southern drainage (the northern drainage takes you to Lotus Flower Tower), to the base of the wall. Expect about an hour of hiking from the meadow.

The aptly named White Tower climbs up the left side of the prominent white pillar on the east face of Terrace Tower. This route has become a popular (for the Cirque) day route as it is relatively uncommitting and holds great climbing on good rock. The first two pitches are throw-away, but the next four pitches up the steep wall more than make up for the bummer start.Pitches 1 and 2: Follow a weakness up and left to the base of the white pillar. 5.6Pitch 3: Climb a wonderful crack in a left facin...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
