Approach the third tower with great discretion. Everyone takes Croft's description like it was the end all be all- and he's wrong.
The so called obvious cracks 40-60 feet left of center lead to doom.
We climbed hard and fast,bypassing multiple bail out slings. Only to get roofed out on some 5.10 moves. I was not hapy.
This resulted in a legendary dowmclimb that got us to the car at 10PM.
Maybe Croft likes to sandbag the route because it's amusing to him.
Tell you what, you start on the route he describes- prepare to get your ass kicked.
Better to move hard left and skip the lies about the Third Tower.
