BETA PHOTO: Upper section of Axl Rose


The first moves are the crux. After this the crack takes small cams well and the face is fun to climb. The upper bolted section looks hideous, but nonetheless has solid edges to move into the chimney. Stay off the floor (loose rock) and move up the chimney clipping bolts.


First route in the Lower Jungle as of 6/30/12.


.4, .5, .75, 5 quick draws and 3 runners.
