140m, 5 pitches. Excellent climbing up strong features, in a magnificent location. The crux pitch (2) is likely to feel harder than advertised in all but good conditions. Climb pitches 1 to 3 as per the summer route, then from the mid height terrace climb the right trending groove line and shallow left facing corner to easier ground (~30m). From the gully climb the right slanting ramp line directly up the front face of the tower (~35m).
