Grappling with the green slopers on Tower Face.

Description 

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.

Location 

The face to the left of the chimney splitting the Tower Buttress.

Protection 

A range of cams.
