Takes a line just L of the outside edge of Watchtower Face. Not too bad but miserable pro.
Turret 12 14m

Climbs the groove just R of edge. Hardest at the start.
Pent 9 14m

Start near Turret. Move R on big holds then up. Some pro.
Sea Breezes 18 15m

Climbs the obvious line up the centre of Watchtower Face. Starts by moving up on large sloping holds, then in R-slanting groove line with good incut holds. Rather serious – some of the holds in the second half could come off and the runners are extremely poor.

A deceptively steep climb up the face R of Sea Breezes, unprotected and loose.

Mildly devious line up R edge of face. The climbing is almost as good as the name.
