The Bower refers to the large gash / cave half way up the cliff face around the arete from Owl Gully. A large oak tree is found growing from the cave, make it easy to locate.

The climbs on the Bower are steep and are all moderately tricky, and all in a superb position.

Getting There 

Walk right around the arete from Owl Gully.

Suicide Wall 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : The Bower
Steep and varied climbing make this one of the best 5.10a climbs in the peak.1. Start at a chimney and climb this then a leftwards slanting crack into the large recess 'The Bower'. 2. From The Bower move right until a layback finger crack is reached. Climb this into a small niche. From the niche reach left to a crack and finish up this in a spectacular position.A great route. It can also be done in one pitch with careful rope work....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
