Jakob on our new route Trundle Love

Description 

A fun corner climb that had so far been overlooked but is deserving of a little traffic. If it sat at ground level it would have been developed years ago. It sits on a ledge half way up the center section at Triple Corners. Could feel easy for a very tall climber and a bit harder for short climbers, but fun all around!

Climb the corner with good sidepulls and underclings to start. Stem it out to a jug, Pull a fun mantle move to a rest stance and climb the slabby face to a ledge out left and clip the anchor.

There are a couple loose holds near the top that are keyed in pretty well, I pulled off everything i could (as the route name implies) but keep an eye on them just in case.

Worth doing. You can now do a 3 pitch route that links Triple Delights (5.4), Trundle Love (5.9) and Reasons to be Cheerful (5.9) to the top of the cliff, all good climbing.


Location 

The easiest way to get there is to climb Triple Delights (5.4) top it out and walk up to the tree below the obvious corner... You can anchor and belay from here... You can also opt for a scramble on to the ledge starting right of Jammit Dammit and heading left on a ledge across that route to the nice belay ledge...

You can rap/lower all the way to the ground from the anchors with a 60m rope...

Protection 

3 bolts to ring anchors

Good beta pictures. I had been thinking it was the corner to the right without them

Lee I did this route today, it was a good time, nice work on finding this hidden gem!

We put an X on one of the loose blocks and pushed a few rocks of the belay area so nobody would be hit on a busy day :)

I think this route should be moved to the Triple Corners Left section, as it is right above Loose and Baggy and most likely climbed after L&B or Triple Delights.

Nice route. A good, tho disjointed, 2nd pitch to Triple Delight.
I clipped the anchors from a "flexi" flake. A little freaky.
Giving it .9+ cause some moves and one clip required shortie like me to stand on less than inspiring footholds.
Good work, Lee! This might be the first of your route I have done!
Wish this thing is twice as long!!
