Halfway up Tower Face (photo by Phil Ashton)


A steep pull is needed to get established on the face. Follow rounded features (well-protected) until a move right on to a ledge, then finish up a crack. Good climbing, good position and a lot of history.


Tower Face lies towards the right-hand side of the crag, up a clean face just left of the final buttress which has overhangs at top and bottom.


Mostly wires and small cams (leave these behind, use a hemp rope and wear old gym shoes if you want to get closer to the style of the first ascent!)
