A fine tower named because of the cannon hole, a narrow tunnel that pierces its upper section. The tower is situated to the left of the track a couple of minutes walk from the parking and is set back a short distance.

12m. Get onto the ledge at the base of the open groove and climb it right then left. Finish past the cannon hole.

12m. Power up the paired jamming cracks to their termination then shuffle right and finish with a taxing mantelshelf.

12m. The continuation provides a fitting finale - low in the grade but awkward enough to keep you working.
