A short but sweet off-width/fist crack leads to jug hauling to the top. Traverse left to the last bolt of Ape Factor and continue up to the anchor.


First obvious line in the Upper Jungle, just right of Ape Factor. Start in the obvious wide crack.


Gear to 4", one bolt (the same last bolt as Ape Factor), Chain anchors.

Wouldn't recommend this one as a warmup. Starts nicely in the crack, but the rest of the route consists of pulling on loose blocks.
