A good, open route. Follow the left-hand groove.
Enjoyable pitch with interesting upper section
The Towel of Babel routes are best belayed off the ground rather than the ledge suggested in the Northern Limestone guide. The 'scramble' to the ledge isn't trivial and can be a bit loose. There is an in-situ sling at the back of the tower for an easy abseil descent.
Surely the approach to the ledge is up the pleasant chimney, rather than the loose rock to the right?
