One of the tallest outcrops on the Skyline, rising to almost 20m! Home to several classy routes, with Tower Face being the testpiece.

Getting There 

Walk along the path from the upper tier, past Condor and Trio Buttresses. Maybe best identified by the jamming crack Thrug splitting the right hand (SE) wall.

Climbing Season

For the The Peak District area.

Weather station 2.4 miles from here

The classic route of Tower Buttress is not to be underestimated! A steady start up easy ground gains a horizontal break at about half way. Good cams go in just below the break, and a rest can be had on a ledge to the right.Progress above the break is more difficult, with a few moves up the crack (dodgy #1 cam) to big slopers on the right. Continue, with increasing boldness up more slope and eventually good holds.Feels much easier in cool conditions....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
