With a little scrambling/bush-whacking, this climb could be a fun start to the day if you are already planning to climb on WatchTower. If so, rap via Watchman's Secret on WatchTower as this will land you close to The Keep route.
The first bit of climbing is so-so but the crack and getting up on top of the thing makes up for it.
It is a 30 meter rap from the 11 mm fixed rope & link at the top of the pinnacle (July 2012) down to the NE - can do climb and rap with one 60 meter rope.
