The second pitch takes a fine right to left line across the upper section of the tower. Start directly below the highest section of the cliff at a thin diagonal crack which starts at around 5m.
1) 4b. Move up to a ledge beneath the diagonal crack and take the corner and crack on the right to a belay on the terrace.
2) 5a. Move left underneath the ivy and then climb the wall to the block overhang in the middle of the tower. Climb the right side of this and stand on the ledge at its top. Follow the obvious break horizontally left to the ledge on the edge of the buttress. Belay.
3) The edge of the buttress to the summit of the tower. Not in current guidebook.
