This is the tower nearest the road, it has routes on all sides. On the northern side there is a short slab with technical offerings whereas those facing the road and the car park are steep, sustained and hard. There are a couple of easier routes on the far right.

The very steep blunt arete is tackled via a tough bulge, then press on up the grey rib above.
