|Jolly Hell||HVS 4b|
|3 pitches. 1) 35m, 4b Do the first pitch of Jolly Roger- Starting from the start of Wreckers Slab, climb diagonally left up the slab. Before the groove, move left over the edge of the slab, and traverse across grass and loose rock to the base of the furthest left, bottomless slab. Belay using pegs/blades and cams at top of a fault near the base of the slab.|
2) 40m 4b.follow a grassy crack on the right and continue on right hand side of the slab after about 10m.bold.sparse protection,mainly pegs and suspect rock.a solid belay (regular trad gear)will be found on the arete after rounding a 'corner'.
3) 50m 4a.follow the loose vegetated corner groove above for approx 20m.then moving rightwards onto the top of the slab on the right continue scrambling upwards and slightly right,to gain the left hand edge of the ridge of Wreckers Slab.Belay on large blocks.
Finally scramble along the ridge and back to the cliff top, as you would for the other routes on this wall.
NOTE:Pegs/blades are needed for runners.none in-situ on the route(except one at 1st belay).at the time of writing.
