Jelly Roll*** E2 5b

Rockfax Description
A sensational airy line up the grooves above Indian Face. Brilliant climbing at an unlikely grade for the situation.
1) 5a, 25m. As for November.
2) 5a, 18m. Continue up November until the crack closes up, then swing left and up to a ledge below a groove.
3) 5b, 35m. Climb the amazing well-protected groove above on big holds with oodles of exposure. At the top overhang, move left. Belay or continue up easy ground to the Eastern Terrace. © ROCKFAX

Fantastic day up at Cloggy, in October. Roasting in the valley, so escaped to the mountain

Seconded 1st pitch which was soaking wet, lead 2nd pitch then lead third after paulo abandoned it. Top pitch gets better and better the higher you go.

Pumpy top pitch.

Had led P1 before as part of Vember. Eszter led P1 and P2 together which worked well. A nice pitch but P3 is better still! A tricky and serious start above the belay with a small blueberry bush providing an impromptu snack and an opportunity to throw a blueberry at your belayer! Then good gear and great bridging and finger locking to the top. Not physical if you do it right! Easy E2 in my book, may be even hard E1 ;-) Carried on to do Pinnacle ArÍte.

In two pitches. Lee Linked P1 & P2 in about 45metres. Top pitch, steady, juggy but hollow like being a mouse climbing up the bark of a tree.

Fantastic climb, all 3 pitches were excellent though sadly i did not experience the jug pulling extravaganza on pitch 3 just hard climbing all the way. Try to get someone to take photos of you on P3 as it is a fantastic position. Enjoy!
