Hell's Bells Barry - we did a "route" on this crag a few years ago but thought:
It's way up the top of a hill.
It's so short no-one's ever going to climb there.
The outcrop is so covered with holds that you could just about climb anywhere on it.
QED It is pointless recording it - so we didn't.
I find it hard to believe that the nature of the place has changed in the interim!
Barry - I really must query most strongly the use of your phrase "dazzling sheet of QUARTZITE". My limited knowledge of geology leads me to believe that this mineral is a metamorphosed form of sandstone ie sand which has been subjected to high pressures and temperatures. Was there a desert-like interlude during the volcanic eruptions which provided the ashes and lavas which make up the Langdale Pikes? In future I would recommend that you are accompanied by a trained geologist during your explorations or at least have one proof read your posts.
Yours, Karl Lunt (in the interests of a geologically sound climbing record)
PS Yes I do have a bit of time on my hands this Saturday morning.
