DescriptionMarital Bliss climbs Jolly Tower.
Part 1: The route starts on the west side of the tower and climbs to the left of a HUGE flake. Fraid climb over manky rock to get into a clean crack. Climb this crack until you get to another section of loose rock, get out of your aiders and free climb by it, to a good, hand-sized crack, and a good ledge on top of the flake. You can stop here, but the anchor would be crap and it is a bolt ladder to the top.
Part 2: Follow the bolts and pins to the summit. There were 6 holes, but we left our pins in them, so it should be a straight up bolt ladder.
The first part of this pitch will go free but what is the point when you have to climb a bolt ladder for the second half of the pitch?
