A classic, the most popular climb on the cliff and with good reason. Start just right of the fall-line from the groove on the right-hand side of the pillar at a well-trodden area.</br>1) 4+, 50m. Wander up easy slabs to the 1st bolt then climb the groove via the odd tricky move past a stance moving over left to another on the tip of the tower - 10 bolts.</br>2) 5, 30m. Climb the face trending slightly left to a short tricky wall, the crux, leading to a groove. Up this to a stance out left.</br>3) 4, 20m. Trend right up the wall by good sustained climbing then move up and left to a small exposed stance.</br>4) 5, 20m. Up the face until a couple of tricky moves lead to easier ground. Up the gully to the top.

A fantastic route.
A great route with lots of variety.
Very nice route, but the first pitch is nowhere near 60 m, rather around 40.
Climbed it in mid Dec 06. Agree with others that the top pitch is as hard as the second one.
Great route, agree second (5) and final (4+) pitches are equally interesting! Used single 60m rope, first pitch was shorter than this (we belayed from the bottom of the route proper not the path). Small cairn marked abseil point; tat or maillons still required for abseil in March 2007. Enjoy!
Abseil OK in Dec. '07 - twin rings on each ab. Great route but mind the warning about wind and watch out for incoming rain!
If you start as per the guidebook (ie from the path rather than the ledge just below the 1st bolt) the pitch 1 is definitely 60m.
A lovely route on very good rock. Watch out for those bluddy cacti on the approach - they're vicious !
This is a nice and safe (well-bolted) multi-pitch route. We did it in May 2010 and enjoyed it very much. The climbing is nice and usually about 4/4+. There are only a few moves harder than 4+ on the entire route, so it makes for an enjoyable and somewhat stress-free undertaking.
Great climb. Started early as the wall is in shade until about 10am and then a breeze kept it ok for the rest.
Climbing is banned on this sector until 31/12/2013. The sign also shows that hiking in the area is also prohibited.
It seemed to us as if access is back here. We were told by a local climber that access was ok and the closed sign shown in the new 2013 rockfax is no longer there. We did a couple of routes this week 25-02-13
First 2 abseils on the left are slightly more than 60m (say 1.5 meter short with our twin rope) but you can scramble off relatively safely. The 3-4 abseil I saw our rope well short of reaching the flats and did not want to risk it...
