This tower offers a fine selection of routes in the orange grades, a nice mixture of shortish multi-pitch routes and some huge single-pitch ones. Double ropes and a heap of quickdraws might help here. As is often the case here the routes are rather packed in though most have their names painted at the base. Wandering between lines is pretty easy mind!
