About White Tower(OS):

This amazing piece of rock is completely hidden from land, a white sheet of rock with some very difficult climbs, and probably the most spectacular route in South Wales, The Great White E6 6c, taking a line directly up the center. About 100 feet tall with about ten climbs from E4 and up. There are also some VS routes to the east on the face of the tower, and a VS traverse of the nearby zawn at VS also. From here to the far east point there are many lines, the best being around VS and definately worth a visit for the climber solid in that grade. The cliffs are known as Pinnacle Buttress, Bridge Zawn, and South Face. A definite must on your itinerary if you are in the area.
