14m. In the left-hand face of the tower, steep cracks lead past a poor rest in a niche. It is also possible to finish up the arete.

You've missed out Sorcerer's Apprentice, which is a shame as the left hand hanging crack above the sloping shelf provides entertaining jamming. Rather green on the wall below.

Talking of Sorcerer's Apprentice... just had a complete epic on it! I fell off twice, once when I was trying to back off it! I have nothing good to say about it, it's green and slippy and a complete sandbag. Normally I like jamming but I found the top crack too awkward, I couldn't finish it and had to climb the gully to set up at the top, my second leads HVS and eventually gave up on it too. Next time something's left out of Rockfax I'll assume it's for a reason and not try it!! Glad no one was standing near me while I was on it, the torrent of abuse coming out of my mouth would be enough to offend anyone :-S
