Description 

This varied line starts just to the right of Djols. Pull a couple moves to a gaping break, then navigate a spatial sequence between a small tufa and a large one. After a no-hands rest perching on top of the large tufa, bust straight up (the right-leaning line is Original Siomai, 5.12b), and tackle the sea of pockets, holding off the pump until the all-too-welcome chains.

Bungal, or "toothless" is so-named because in the process of establishing this route ground-up, the first ascensionist took a large block to the face, losing several teeth. Because of the oft-chossy nature, and to ensure well-placed bolts and clean lines, rap-bolting is now the norm and accepted ethic at the crag. One of the best at the grade, demanding power-endurance as well as a variety of techniques.


Location 

The leftmost route in Area 4, starts to the right of Djols, between a large tufa and a small tufa just right of it.


Protection 

5 bolts, 2 thread-through slings, ring anchors at the top.
