Description:If anyone suggests doing this climb, make sure they second the dangerous abseil section. If anyone is even considering extending the climb by girdling the left Watchtower face and linking the two, could you please shoot yourself beforehand and save the rest of us the bother.
Description:This worthless girdle of the Right Watchtower begins by climbing to the end of the initial traverse of Skink. Now abseil from the ancient peg and traverse right to Salamander and thence to Mantle. Climb the second pitch of Mantle for 30 metres. Keep going right on mossy rock past a terrible bolt to Panzer's Terrace.
