If anyone wants to join in and get the photies then I’d be happy to hear from you. I’ll post on the “Meeting up, arranging trips and walking clubs” forum when the time comes.

I always find that ascending the back of the tower is easier than coming back down. There is a very narrow ledge that you can just about get your toes on and it runs diagonally up from left to right just where the path ends behind the tower; the first time I descended this way I came off the ledge too early and landed awkwardly on the sloping path. After this, I made sure I came all the way back down the ledge to the point where you can step off safely onto the very end of the path where it stops before the gulley on the other side. There is a gap down to this point between rocks from the summit, but I've never tried that way. Taking a nosedive into the gulley doesn't appeal to me!!
