A fine tower plastered with big holds. A sunny aspect and good sunbathing ledges add to the attractions. It was the scene of the first routes on the crag back in the early 1990s. Guidebook page 180.

Another classic, starting up the central groove then heading left up the daunting head-wall. Quite uphill at the grade.
