A technical, exhilirating route. A great contrast to its companion climb.
Start: As for 'The Watchtower Crack'.
25m (12) Climb the slab just right of the corner until you can move left onto a large ledge (first pitch of Watchtower Crack).
40m (18) Follow the main corner for a bit, then the left-hand line to a cave (second pitch of Watchtower Crack) and up to below the overhang. Traverse out right on fantastic horizontal break. Tricky moves gain sickle shaped line and move up to very small stance which has some good wires and is surprisingly comfortable. Don't be tempted by the piton of 'Gollum' a few metres higher, you are much better off where you are.
42m (17) Follow the flake line, which eases towards the top.
First Ascent: Chris Dewhirst, John Moore, 25 Apr 1966
