Blue Collar Ape

The only 5.9 move on "Blue Collar Ape" - the crux.
This is a very fun zigzagging route with a scary reach problem at the third bolt. Otherwise, the climb is made up of mostly 5.7 and 5.8 moves. Five bolts to shuts.
In the Lower Jungle on the "Pygmy Wall" right of "Flaky Chimp" and just left of "Homo cragus" of which it shares the anchor.
Five quick draws to shuts.

Fun route with great balancey moves at the 3rd bolt, the sequence will definitely make you think. The upper crack is a bit loose, I'd stay away from pulling on the jugs inside and jam instead.

Another fun route if you have the reach for the crux. My partner didn't and found it frustrating. Agree with Boissal to use the jam for the last moves to the anchor.
