The Jolly Cobbler

Type: 
Rock
Description: 
The first route to breach the unclimbed wall right of Gump's. Originally thought to be too rotten to be climbed, this wall has surprised many with the quality of climbing it holds. Can be climbed in one long 30m pitch - take 14 QD's.

Up the track a wee way to a belay ledge carved out of the dirt. Step left into the recess in the wall with a staple in the middle of it then into the crack above. When the crack terminates, move out onto the wall of knobs where steep climbing leads to the semi-hanging belay at 15 metres.

Launch rightwards across the wall to some powerful moves through the weakness (take a deep breath and hang in there) before moving back left onto a hanging gray slab. Get set for a stonking finish up the hanging corner. Can be climbed in one long pitch - take two or three extender slings to mitigate rope drag.
