Comments: This week end looks doable. You might be happier if you camp down at the Pine Lake CG. I also do not know about the bad spot in the road since the last rain.

Comments: Mon. and Tue. in the J was at its best. 60* F calm and nobody there...but two. Colors are mostly spent. The road however has taken more hits after the grading and now requires high clearance, at least all-wheel-drive, or maybe a shovel and two industrious folks with a 2 wheel drive. It is only one spot not far from the Pine Lake campground.

Comments: So...I do not know what to say. I try to stay out of the main stream and live day to to day, off the grid, while trying to find a good deed to do, and make the planet better. Which means, I have NO clue what to call what I did in terms of modern technical climbing jargon. Saw the line, knew it would be sweet, and as usual, under estimated it. Ran in to a 3rd wheel who graciously submitted to cold and wind to set this beast up. Then had to bail due to the cold. It later warmed up and I knew I ... more >>

Comments: Although there may be some distance between bolts the climbing is on good rock and positive in those "blank" areas. IF you need gear in these spaces then wires and tricams may help but when you get to the top you will soon understand you are most likely out of your comfort level.

Comments: Some kind soul(s) built a new campsite at the hair pin turn "under" the Upper Jungle walls and talus. Thanks. Also, some folks left a clean camp complete with fire wood and beer down near where I often reside. Again, thank you. I look forward to trying the Moab micro brew.

(edit 8/16/16) Some ass tore down the exquisite rock work (see comment above) forming a wind break and built in oven/fire place that formed a beautiful arch and was well designed. USFS? Why... more >>

Comments: The crack and the face are both fun and on descent rock. More stars would be added if you were not forced to stay in the crack thus avoiding poor sections right and left of the crack. That being said, the crack is very climbable and takes gear well. So be a crack junky!

Comments: If, after clipping the first bolt up high and exposed, you get sketched out, you can 5.9 it right to the anchor for "The Last Shadow You Will Ever See." This will of course be missing the best moves on the line!

Comments: An old guy thinks something is lost here regarding the connection with rock, nature, and the solitude of the climbing experience.

Comments: There are better lines just right and left of this. All (like most of the rock in the Jungle) unclimbed.

Comments: Crusher and I agreed that this line could go free and be great. The sweet crack ends in soft rock and though is takes gear (BD 4s and larger) the placement(s) would not inspire you. So if anybody wants the FFA you might well want to place a 1/2" X 4" bolt on the face just above the cracks high point prior to starting the crux traverse. This would be just six feet of moving left where you can get some more cams (BD # 2,3, and 4) in better rock. It would be a proud accent!

Comments: Looks like this climbing season has ended for the Jungle. A big thanks to all those who helped with route setting this season. We now have enough lines to keep the visitors busy for an extended length of time. Speaking of visitors, thanks to all of you for making the drive. Hope to see you again. The Jungle could use some more 13s and +. There are some great possibilities and I would be happy to point you in the right direction.
